Subpoenas Target Baltimore’s Top Prosecutor, City Councilman

Associated Press, March 19, 2021

Federal prosecutors have launched a criminal investigation into the finances of Baltimore’s top prosecutor and her husband, who is city council president.

The Baltimore Sun reported Friday that it obtained a grand jury subpoena seeking business records for State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby and City Council President Nick Mosby, including tax returns, bank and credit card statements and other financial documents.

One subpoena was issued to Marilyn Mosby’s campaign treasurer and requested records tracing back to 2014, some related to the Mosbys’ private travel and consulting businesses.

Marilyn Mosby has been a high-profile prosecutor who has aligned herself with criminal-justice reformers. She rose to national prominence in 2015 when she pursued criminal charges against six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, a Black man who suffered a broken neck while in police custody, triggering riots and protests. {snip}

Last month the city’s inspector general issued a report saying that Marilyn Mosby took two dozen trips in 2018 and 2019 without receiving prior approval.
