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

“People might ask you, ‘Why is the church wrapping their arms around somebody who has been indicted with these types of crimes?” [It’s] because that’s what Jesus would do,” Turner said.
Turner even offered financial support to Mosby, which she declined.
Mosby has said that she plans to fight the charges. She noted during a press conference on Friday that she had received death threats. But these things will not prevent her from serving as state’s attorney, she said.MORE NEWS: Horseshoe Casino Hosting Hiring Event To Fill Dozens Of Positions
“Don’t be fooled,” Mosby said during the press conference. “We are five months from my next election, and this indictment is merely a political ploy by my political adversaries to unseat me.”
