The Maryland Supreme Court on a 4-2 vote declined to suspend Marilyn J. Mosby’s active attorney status, allowing the former Baltimore City prosecutor to practice law while appealing her federal criminal convictions to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.

A federal jury in February found Mosby guilty of making a false mortgage application when buying a Florida condo in 2021, and another federal jury convicted Mosby last November on two counts of perjury related to her withdrawing tens of thousands from Baltimore’s Deferred Compensation Plan, claiming she needed the money to deal with financial hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland.
