Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby proclaims her innocence

NNPA – Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby doubled down on her proclamation that she is innocent.
Attorney A. Scott Bolden and supporters of the embattled Mosby held a press conference Monday afternoon to announce that they’re prepared to fight criminal charges leveled by the federal government against Mosby.

Bolden, who also serves as corporation counsel for the National Newspaper Publishers Association, said he wants to go to trial before this year’s election, which Mosby seeks reelection.

A grand jury indicted Mosby on four felony counts on Thursday.

She faces charges of perjury and making false statements. Federal prosecutors allege she lied about suffering COVID-19 hardships to withdraw money without penalty from her retirement account and falsified information on loan applications for vacation homes in Florida.

Her defense is simple, Bolden remarked.

“She received financial advice that she was eligible to withdraw money from her retirement account,” he said relating to the case’s primary issue.

“I’m telling you she’s not only innocent, but we have professionals who she consulted with, and she qualifies under the statute,” Bolden declared.

During the news conference, the accomplished attorney quizzed media members.

“If you were not affected by COVID financially, whether you kept your job or not, raise your hand,” Bolden requested.

Federal prosecutors alleged that Mosby’s gross salary increased between 2019 and 2020 from $239,000 to $248,000. Bolden countered that his client had established two new companies, and “those businesses were running, and they were being pursued and they were legally on the books.”

He said Mosby did not know about a tax lien filed in 2020 against her and husband Nick, Baltimore’s city council president, for $45,000 in unpaid taxes.

Bolden intimated that the case is part of a witch hunt and politically motivated to end the career of Mosby, who took office in 2015.

The attorney pointed out that the Mosby family only learned about the government lien through media reports.

“I’m not going to ask you where you got it from, but we certainly didn’t get it,” Bolden asserted. “My clients didn’t get it, and it wasn’t delivered or to them in the normal way if you will.”

For her part, Mosby stated that “Without equivocation, I am innocent on the charges levied against me. I have done nothing wrong, and I am confident that I will be exonerated, and my name will be cleared.”

October 16, 2023, HOUSTON, TX – Congressional Candidate Amanda Edwards has raised over $1 million in less than 4 months, a substantial sum that helps bolster the frontrunner status of the former At-Large Houston City Council Member in her bid for U.S. Congress.

The strong support from our supporters will help us to cultivate an 18th Congressional District where everyone in it can thrive.” Edwards said. “Amanda understands the challenges that the hard-working folks of the 18th Congressional District face because she has never lost sight of who she is or where she comes from; she was born and raised right here in the 18th Congressional District of Houston,” said Kathryn McNiel, spokesperson for Edwards’ campaign.

As September 13th rolls around, we extend our warmest birthday wishes to the creative powerhouse, Tyler Perry, a man whose indomitable spirit and groundbreaking work have left an indelible mark on the world of entertainment. With his multifaceted talents as an actor, playwright, screenwriter, producer, and director, Tyler Perry has not only entertained but also inspired audiences worldwide, particularly within the African-American community, where his influence and role have been nothing short of powerful. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1969, Tyler Perry’s journey to stardom was a path riddled with adversity. Raised in a turbulent household, he found refuge in writing, using it as a therapeutic outlet. This period of introspection gave rise to one of his most iconic creations, Madea, a vivacious, no-nonsense grandmother who would later become a beloved figure in Perry’s works, offering a unique blend of humor and profound life lessons. Despite facing numerous challenges, including rejection and financial struggles, Perry’s determination and unwavering belief in his abilities propelled him forward. In 1992, he staged his first play, “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” which, although met with limited success, was a pivotal moment in his career. Unfazed by initial setbacks, Perry continued to hone his craft, and by 1998, he had successfully produced a string of stage plays that showcased his storytelling prowess.
