After a months-long investigation, a federal grand jury has handed down a four-count indictment alleging that Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby committed perjury on financial forms.

Two counts of the indictment allege that Ms. Mosby falsely certified that she had experienced adverse financial consequences due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The other two counts allege that Ms. Mosby, the city's top prosecutor, made false statements on loan applications for properties she bought in Florida.

Ms. Mosby addressed the charges at a Baltimore news conference at 1pm on Friday.

Tom discusses the legal and ethical implications of Ms. Mosby's indictment today with two scholars at the University of Baltimore: David Jaros, the Faculty Director of the Center for Criminal Justice Reform in the UBalt School of Law, and Roger Hartley, the Dean of UBalt's College of Public Affairs.

But Tom's first guest is A. Scott Bolden, a partner at the Washington, DC law firm of Reed, Smith LLP, who is serving as Marilyn Mosby’s attorney.

Our guests join us on Zoom.
