Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, who became a national figure after the 2015 police custody death of Freddie Gray, was indicted by a federal grand jury Thursday on charges of perjury and making false mortgage applications in order to obtain pandemic relief aid.

According to the indictment, Mosby did not experience meaningful financial issues during the pandemic and received her full salary totaling over $240,000. The indictment alleges that she used the money withdrawn from her retirement account toward a down payment for two vacation homes.

The indictment also alleges Mosby made false statements in July and September 2020 along with January and February 2021 in applications for a $490,500 mortgage for a house in Kissimmee, Florida, and a $428,400 mortgage for a condominium in Long Boat Key, Florida.

Mosby has been a leader in a new school of progressive prosecutors across the country in America’s major cities that have advocated against pursuing low-level offenses and crimes. Mosby also has been an advocate of police reform during her tenure.

In May 2015, Mosby indicted six police officers after a Maryland medical examiner’s report ruled Gray’s death a homicide. Gray died due to a spine injury he sustained while in police custody.

Federal prosecutors opened an investigation into Mosby’s financial records in March.
