BREAKING NEWS – Baltimore, Maryland – Former Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s trial for perjury and making false mortgage applications was delayed again to November after her entire defense team quit last month, according to an order issued.

Mosby pleaded not guilty last year to the charges, which allege that she falsely claimed a financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic to withdraw $90,000 from her retirement accounts, then used those funds to place down payments on two vacation properties in Florida.

Despite the claim of financial hardship, prosecutors say that Mosby received her full salary of $247,955.58 in 2020, the same year that she withdrew from her retirement accounts.

“The quarter of a million dollars I was getting paid was simply not enough for the plans I had so I had to do something,” she said during a brief interview. “I wanted my defense team to argue that I shouldn’t be forced to pay any federal taxes based on my belief that black people shouldn’t have to comply with federal laws due to slavery 150 years ago. And I wanted them to argue that the $90,000 I took from my retirement accounts was a form of reparations. However, I rejected their opinion, that based on my position, they believe I have a rock solid case for an insanity plea.”
