BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore’s former top prosecutor Marilyn Mosby has applied for a presidential pardon ahead of sentencing on her recent perjury and mortgage fraud convictions. According to The Baltimore Sun, the Congressional Black Caucus expressed support for her cause in a letter to President Joe Biden last Thursday. Mosby has argued the prosecution was politically motivated. The letter says Mosby submitted her pardon application last Wednesday. Her federal criminal charges stemmed from allegations Mosby claimed a pandemic-related hardship to make early withdrawals from her retirement account, then used that money for down payments on Florida properties.
