After hours of deliberation on Thursday, a jury found Marilyn Mosby guilty on both federal perjury counts.
Jurors returned to federal court in Greenbelt at 8:30 a.m. Thursday after receiving the case late Wednesday afternoon following instructions from the judge and almost three hours of closing arguments. The jury took up two counts of perjury and announced its verdict shortly after 4 p.m.
While walking out of the federal courthouse, Mosby said: “I’m blessed, I have nothing else to say.”
In a statement released after the verdict was read, Maryland U.S. Attorney Erek Barron said: “We respect the jury’s verdict and remain steadfastly committed to our mission to uphold the rule of law, keep our country safe, protect the civil rights of all Americans, and safeguard public property.”
