Maryland's top cop Marilyn Mosby was indicted for lying on mortgage loan applications for two vacation properties she purchased in Florida.

Mosby, a Democrat, was indicted by a federal grand jury on two counts of perjury and making false statements on mortgage loan applications, Yahoo News reported. The indictment was unsealed on Thursday.

The indictment alleges the mom-of-two lied about experiencing "adverse financial consequences" during the pandemic in 2020.

Federal prosecutors say her gross salary of nearly $250,000 increased by nearly $10,000 between 2019 and 2020.

The indictment also alleges that Mosby lied on a COVID relief application. She claimed she lost income during the pandemic and received $36,000, which she used "toward a down payment for a vacation home in Kissimmee Florida" in September 2020.

The indictment accuses Mosby of lying on applications for mortgages of nearly $500,000 for the Kissimmee, Florida, home and a nearly $430,000 mortgage for a condominium in Long Boat Key, Florida.

Mosby faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison for each count of perjury and a maximum of 30 years for each count of making false mortgage applications.

Mosby, 41, gained notoriety in 2015 for prosecuting five Baltimore police officers who arrested 25-year-old Freddie Gray in 2015.

Gray was found unresponsive in the back of a paddy wagon. He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

The five officers were eventually acquitted of all charges.

A Nevada woman and an ex-CNN producer have been charged with sexually abusing a child.

Heather Carriker, 48, and former CNN producer John Griffin are charged with child abuse, sexual assault against a child under 14 and lewdness with a minor under 14.

Carriker is accused of providing a child victim to Griffin who was indicted by a federal grand jury for alleged sex crimes with underage girls.

Henderson police in Nevada arrested Carriker in August 2020, according to 8NewsNow.

Prosecutor's say Carriker took $3,000 from Griffin in June 2020 to transport a 9-year-old girl from Nevada to Boston. Carriker and the girl were met at the airport by Griffin in his red Tesla and driven to his ski cabin in Ludlow, Vermont.

Once there, the child was directed to engage in unlawful sexual activity with both adults, according to federal prosecutors in the news release.

Griffin worked with disgraced news anchor Chris Cuomo on CNN's "New Day" from the show's launch in 2013. CNN fired Griffin after he was indicted by a federal grand jury last week.

Cuomo was fired by CNN earlier this month for digging up dirt on women who accused his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, of sexual harassment.

An Arkansas jury found Josh Duggar guilty on both counts of downloading and possessing child porn. Duggar and his wife Anna are pictured arriving to court on Thursday morning.

The jury deliberated for six hours before finding him guilty.

The 33-year-old former reality TV star broke down in tears as U.S. marshals handcuffed him after the verdict was read in the courtroom.

The judge remanded him into custody under a rule based on the seriousness of his crimes. Prosecutors say Duggar downloaded "the worst of the worst" child porn.

He mouthed the words "I love you" to Anna as he was led away on Thursday. Duggar and Anna share seven children.

A family friend testified that Duggar (3rd from left) confessed at age 15 to groping and penetrating his sisters during "bible time" and while they slept.

His fall from grace began when he believed he was sharing files from his devices with other perverts online.

But a detective using a police program caught Duggar in the act of sharing porn files online. She was able to upload video and 65 images from his computer of a young girl being abused.

She tipped off the feds who traced the IP address to Duggar's used car dealership, and seized his desktop computer, iPhone and MacBook laptop.

Duggar agreed to speak with federal agents, and asked them: "Has someone been downloading child pornography?"

Government prosecutors dismissed Duggar's claims that a "high-level hacker" broke into his computer and downloaded the material.

The government said Duggar installed a secret second operating system behind a partition on his computer that only he alone could access.

Duggar and his wholesome siblings were stars of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting." The series was canceled following his arrest in April.

His sentencing hearing is scheduled for next year. He faces 40 years in prison and a $500,000 fine if convicted on both counts.

Jason Lary, the Mayor of Stonecrest, Georgia, was arrested and arraigned on federal charges of wire fraud related to the theft of federal PPP relief funds.

Lania Boone, a bookkeeper hired by the city to disburse the funds, was also arraigned on federal charges of conspiring with Lary to steal PPP funds.

The funds were provided to the city of Stonecrest to address the city's economic needs amid the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.

A total of $6 million was allocated to Stonecrest for face masks, Covid-19 education and testing, and rent relief.

The funds were distributed to churches, non-profit organizations and small businesses along with instructions to give contributions to entities Lary controlled.

For example, Lary presented a check for $150,000 to one church with instructions to give $50,000 to an entity called Real Estate Management Consultants, LLC (REMC).

Lary allegedly didn't tell the church that he controlled REMC.

Lary reportedly diverted funds to his own bank accounts to pay his taxes and to pay off the mortgage on his lakefront home.

"Lary allegedly abused the power and trust conferred on him as Mayor of Stonecrest to steal hundreds of thousands of dollars intended for COVID-19 relief," said Acting U.S. Attorney Kurt R. Erskine. "Instead of providing aid to Stonecrest's deserving citizens, Lary allegedly diverted funds for his own use, including to pay off his taxes and the mortgage on his lakefront home."

Rapper Fetty Wap was denied bail during a virtual arraignment at a federal lockup in Central Islip, New York on Friday.

Wap was arrested Thursday, ahead of his performance at the Rolling Loud Music Festival New York. The "Trap Queen" rapper was taken into custody by FBI agents at the Citi Field stadium in Queens.

The artist, born William Junior Maxwell II, was one of six men indicted by prosecutors in Brooklyn, the US justice department said in a statement on Friday.

Prosecutors claim Wap, along with five others, trafficked more than 100 kilograms of heroin, fentanyl and crack cocaine from the west coast and sold the deadly drugs in New Jersey and Long Island, according to the New York Post.

One of his alleged associates, Anthony Cyntje, is a New Jersey corrections officer.

The 30-year-old father-of-7 was born with glaucoma in both eyes. Doctors were unable to save his left eye.

Wap faces life in prison if convicted.

Fetty Wap is in FBI custody following his arrest on federal drugs charges on Thursday afternoon.

The "Trap Queen" rapper was arrested by FBI agents on Thursday, Oct. 28, at the Citi Field stadium in Queens, New York, a senior law enforcement source told the New York Post's Page Six.

The stadium is where the Rolling Loud New York Festival was taking place.

The FBI typically doesn't waste time on street level drug deals or recreational marijuana use. Federal drug busts usually involve massive quantities of drugs or drug trafficking.

Wap, real name Willie Junior Maxwell II, is expected to appear in federal court later on Friday, although no further details of his arrest were immediately available about the arrest.

The 30-year-old New Jersey native was arrested two years ago in Las Vegas for allegedly punching a car valet.

He was signed to 300 Entertainment in 2014. He is ranked No. 17 on Sandrarose.com's list of prolific breeders in hip-hop with 7 kids by 6 women.

His four-year-old daughter Lauren Maxwell died over the summer.

St. Martin Parish Jail

Rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again has been released from St. Martin Parish Jail on $500,000 cash bond.

The rapper, formerly known as NBA YoungBoy, was released from jail on Tuesday, Oct. 26, after 7 months behind bars on a federal weapons charge.

YoungBoy, real name Kentrell Gaulden, was ordered to wear an ankle monitor on house arrest in Utah -- far from his gang affiliates in Atlanta and Louisiana.

However, prosecutors say the Baton Rouge rapper still committed crimes while in contact with his extended family in Utah.

Prosecutors also alleged YoungBoy paid his childhood tutor $600,000 between January 4 and February 1st for "celebrity assistant" services.

The judge ordered YoungBoy to hire three ex-military soldiers as around-the-clock security while he awaits trial on federal gun charges.

Prosecutors point out that YoungBoy will pay the ex-military soldiers $21,000 a week.

YoungBoy was originally ordered released from a St. Martin Parish Jail on Friday, but a California court had an outstanding warrant on the rapper. That warrant was dropped, paving the way for his release.

YoungBoy is now expected to get to work on his next album from a recording studio at his Utah home, although Chief U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick stressed that visitors will be limited to three at any time. The visitors also have to be approved by the judge.

YoungBoy is ranked No. 9 on Sandrarose.com's list of prolific breeders in Hip-Hop. The 22-year-old rapper has 8 children by at least seven women.

Federal authorities are investigating whether a former employee of the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) leaked information about incarcerated singer R. Kelly to a blogger.

Kelly was arrested over 2 years ago in Chicago and extradited to New York to stand trial on racketeering and sex trafficking charges.

According to BOP records, the employee accessed R. Kelly's files on a computer server 153 times in 2019. The employee had no authority to read the records.

Prosecutors asked a judge for permission to subpoena the employee's computer after YouTube vlogger Tasha K reported information only a prison employee would know.

In the affidavit which was unsealed in federal court in Chicago August 18, the employee is identified only as "Officer A."

Kelly is identified as "Inmate A... a nationally recognized celebrity whose criminal case has received media attention."

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Joseph Fitzpatrick, a spokesman for U.S. Attorney John Lausch, confirmed "Inmate A" is Kelly.

Details contained in the affidavit was first reported by the Chicago Tribune.

The employee accessed records pertaining to Kelly while he was an inmate at Chicago's Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in 2019. The employee worked at the Thomson Correctional Center from May 2019 until December 2019 when she retired, according to the affidavit.

BOP records shows the officer in question used her BOP password to access Kelly's records between July 15, 2019 and Dec. 12, 2019 — even though the officer was not assigned to the MCC and was not authorized to access them.

In total, 60 BOP employees accessed Kelly's records from July 15, 2019, through Jan. 8, 2020, according to the affidavit. But the officer in question accessed the records 153 times.

Tasha K, real name Latasha Kebe, 39, runs a popular Instagram blog and YouTube channel called UnwinewithTashaK. Her last known address is in Atlanta.

Tasha K reported information about Kelly known only to BOP employees, such as inmate calls, visitation logs, emails and funds, the affidavit said.

Tasha K's Instagram and YouTube channel were monitored by a federal agent after she published Kelly's visitation list and revealed a date of Dec. 5, 2019, at 8:07 a.m. in a Jan. 12, 2020 Instagram post.

The agent wrote that BOP records showed the employee accessed Kelly's records at that same time. Other BOP employees accessed the records at other times of the day, the agent wrote.

The employee also sent an email from her official BOP email address to a Gmail address on Nov. 13, 2019, and attached a 12-page document that contained Kelly's visitor records and money logs, according to the affidavit.

Tasha K reported some of the details in that email attachment in a Dec. 22, 2019 YouTube video, the agent wrote.

No charges have been filed against Tasha K.

According to TMZ, a judge recently tossed Tasha's $3 million lawsuit against rapper Cardi B, in which she claimed the rapper assaulted her after she reported allegations about the star's minor daughter, Kulture.

Kelly faces federal racketeering charges in Brooklyn alleging he recruited women and girls for illegal sex and filmed child pornography.

Kelly has pleaded not guilty to all charges. He faces up to life in prison if found guilty on all counts.

Chicago-raised drill rapper G Herbo welcomed a newborn baby on the same day he pleaded "not guilty" to lying to federal agents about his identity theft case.

G Herbo and fiancee Taina Williams, 23, welcomed their first child together this week. The rapper posted a B&W Instagram photo that showed him holding his newborn to his tattooed chest.

The little baby's right hand is balled up in a fist.

Herbo also has a son named Yosohn with ex-fiancee Ariana Fletcher, 25.

Love & Hip Hop: New York star Emily Bustamante is a new grandmother at 40. Taina's stepfather is the rapper Fabolous, 43.

Herbo, 25, appeared in Springfield court via Zoom from his Los Angeles home where he entered his not guilty plea on Tuesday, May 25.

He allegedly told a federal agent he had no relationship with a defendant in the identity theft case.

Prosecutors say Herbo, real name Herbert Wright III does, in fact, know the other defendant, Chicago promoter Antonio Strong.

Strong reportedly gave Herbo "valuable goods," including "private jet charters, luxury accommodations, and exotic car rentals."

Prosecutors say Herbo "knowingly and willfully made the following materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statements and representations in a matter within the jurisdiction of the executive branch of the Government of the United States."

Lying to the feds is a serious federal charge punishable by prison time and a stiff fine. He is set to go to court on the original identity theft charges in August.

Congratulations to the apparently happy couple.
