Update: A federal judge sentenced ex-Baltimore prosecutor Marilyn Mosby to one year home detention following mortgage fraud and perjury convictions.

Prosecutors said Mosby used a bogus COVID hardship claim to withdraw money from retirement accounts to buy two vacation homes in Florida.

The judge also ordered her to forfeit a luxury condo to the government.

Mosby’s home confinement will be served concurrently with 3 years of supervised release.

Additionally, Mosby was ordered to complete 100 hours of community service.

Mosby made headlines in 2015 when she charged six police officers in connection with the death of Freddie Gray. The 25-year-old Baltimore resident suffered critical spinal cord injuries in the back of a police van. He later died in a hospital.

During defense presentations on Thursday, Mosby’s brother, Alan, told the judge that she is “an amazing mother” who is doing “everything she can” for her children.

Previously, Mosby pleaded with President Biden to show her “grace” and “justice” ahead of her sentencing hearing.

In February, a jury convicted Mosby of lying on a mortgage loan application. A separate jury convicted her of improperly accessing retirement funds during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mosby’s lawyers submitted an application for a pardon to the U.S. Department of Justice. They argued that she was legally entitled to withdraw her retirement money and spend it however she wanted.

But the law is clear: no early withdrawals from retirement accounts except in an emergency or financial hardship.

Mosby’s lawyers argued that she was convicted for federal offenses “that entail no victim, no financial loss, and no use of public funds.”

“Jail is not justice for Marilyn Mosby,” her lawyers wrote to the DOJ.

Additionally, over 60 lawyers, including civil rights lawyer Ben Crump, have asked Biden to grant Mosby’s pardon.

Crump said Mosby’s convictions should be considered “minor white collar…” He said that others have gotten “a slap on the wrist” for committing similar crimes.

“Under the neck of that white collar is the neck of a Black woman” who challenged the system, he said.

The Biden administration acknowledged receiving Mosby’s pardon application. However, Biden officials have declined to comment on her request.
