BALTIMORE, MD - Disgraced former Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby, 44, was sentenced by a Federal Judge to time already served and 12 months confinement in her home, to be served concurring with supervised release for three years following her conviction on charges of mortgage fraud and perjury.

According to Maryland Code, Real Property § 7-407, the mortgage fraud charge alone is a felony punishable by a fine of up to $100k and up to 20 years in prison.

According to CNN, Mosby,  known for the prosecution of six police officers in connection to the death of Freddie Gray, has also been ordered to complete 100 hours of community service after US prosecutors interceded, requesting the court sentence her to 20 months with supervised release in a May 9th memorandum.

Despite the maximum sentence being far greater, the memo seemed to imply that the sentence imposed upon Mosby is severe saying it would, "make clear that those who break the law, including those in positions of public trust, will be held accountable.”

Her attorneys even claimed that the light sentence suggested she "has been punished enough," and requested the "time served" decision, which the court obliged. 
Former Fox News host Breanna Morello, now host of a show by her own name, heavily criticized Federal Judge Lydia Griggsby and the sentencing in a post to X, "Corrupt former Baltimore prosecutor Marilyn Mosby gets to avoid PRISON after being convicted of mortgage fraud & perjury. Mosby was sentenced to 12 months of home detention. She was facing 40 years in prison.

"The judge overseeing her case was a Biden-appointee. The judge also ordered Mosby to forfeit her Florida vacation house, though Mosby will get back her down payment and 10% of the appreciated value. Folks, that’s called dem privilege!"

Local outlet WBFF-TV reported that Girggsby ordered Federal Prosecutors to seize the condo that Mosby bought in February 2021 for $476,000 in Long Boat Key, FL. Prosecutors stated prior to the sentencing hearing that Mosby would get back her $47,600 down payment if they property were sold for a profit. 

“While Ms. Mosby should not be allowed to profit from her crimes, neither should the forfeiture process be used to deprive her of property not subject to forfeiture,” prosecutors wrote in court documents.

Anyone who she would have prosecuted would have had the key thrown away. Dem judges love other Dems
