Baltimore City State’s Attorney Maryland Mosby made her first appearance in court on Friday since she was indicted Jan. 13 on two counts of perjury and two counts of making false statements on loan applications to buy a pair of properties in Florida.
She pleaded not guilty plea to all four counts Friday.
Speedy trial request/The Baltimore Sun: The Sun’s Jessica Anderson reports that Mosby’s lawyer, A. Scott Bolden, said his client will request a speedy trial, within 60 days. That would mean the criminal could be resolved ahead of the June 28 primary, where Mosby will be seeking re-election.
Trial would take four days/WBAL-TV: Barry Simms at WBAL-TV reports that Mosby’s trial on federal charges may only take four days.
Motions due Feb. 18/Maryland Matters: Maryland Matters reporter Danielle E. Gaines reports that U.S. Magistrate Judge J. Mark Coulson set Feb. 18 as a deadline for pretrial motions.
