Judge rules prosecutors can’t mention previous investigations of Marilyn Mosby at her criminal trial

September 8, 2022

A federal judge barred prosecutors Wednesday from mentioning any of the previous investigations into Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby at her perjury and mortgage fraud trial later this month, making it harder for the government to introduce Mosby’s previous comments about her side businesses. U.S. District Court Judge Lydia Kay Griggsby said during the first of two pretrial hearings that any mention of previous investigations into Mosby would be “very prejudicial” at trial, meaning it could influence jurors into thinking she was guilty.
