Jury returns split verdict in mortgage fraud case

A jury returned a split verdict in former Baltimore City State Attorney Marilyn Mosby‘s federal mortgage fraud trial on Tuesday.

A federal jury found Mosby, 44, guilty on the charge of making a false mortgage application in connection to a vacation home she purchased in Long Boat Key, Florida, the Department of Justice announced in a press release.

However, the jury acquitted her of a second charge of making a false mortgage application in connection to a vacation home she purchased in Kissimmee, Florida.

“We humbly respect the court’s considered rulings, opposing counsels’ zealous advocacy, and the wisdom of both jury verdicts in this case and we remain focused on our mission to uphold the rule of law,” U.S. Attorney Erek L. Barron said.
