A former Baltimore City State’s Attorney, Marilyn J. Mosby, has been convicted of making a false mortgage application. The conviction came after a federal jury found her guilty of the charge in relation to the purchase of a condominium in Long Boat Key, Florida.
The jury, however, acquitted Mosby of the false mortgage application related to her purchase of a home in Kissimmee, Florida.
United States Attorney for the District of Maryland, Erek L. Barron, announced the conviction. He expressed respect for the court’s rulings and emphasized the commitment to upholding the rule of law.
The evidence presented at the trial showed that Mosby had made a false statement in her mortgage application for a $428,400 loan in February 2021. She falsely claimed to have received a $5,000 gift from her husband to be used for the property’s purchase. The purpose of this false statement was to secure a lower interest rate. However, it was revealed during the trial that Mosby did not receive a $5,000 gift from her husband. Instead, she transferred $5,000 to him, and he transferred it back to her.
If sentenced to the maximum penalty for making a false mortgage application, Mosby could face up to 30 years in federal prison.
This is not the first conviction for Mosby. In November 2023, she was previously convicted on two counts of perjury. The charges were related to the withdrawal of funds from the City of Baltimore‘s Deferred Compensation Plan, where Mosby claimed to have suffered adverse financial consequences during the COVID-19 pandemic while serving as Baltimore City State’s Attorney. For each count of perjury, Mosby faces a maximum of five years in federal prison.
U.S. District Judge Lydia K. Griggsby has not yet scheduled a sentencing date for either of Mosby’s pending federal cases.
The investigation leading to the conviction was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI) with assistance from the Baltimore City Office of the Inspector General. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Sean R. Delaney and Aaron S.J. Zelinsky were commended for their hard work and focus throughout the case by U.S. Attorney Erek L. Barron.
