The state’s attorney and her legal team originally said they were ready to go to trial immediately, but later successfully pushed to move the date from early May to September.
The government accuses Mosby of perjury, arguing she knowingly lied to take a hardship withdrawal from her retirement account due to the pandemic when she was employed the entire time.
Prosecutors also claim she provided false information on mortgage applications for two Florida vacation homes in order to get lower interest rates.

“I’m here before you today to state unequivocally that I am innocent,” Mosby said during a January press conference shortly after the charges came to light. “I intend to do what I’ve always done since I became state’s attorney for the city and in the city that I love: Fight. I will fight these charges with everything I have in me, and I will be victorious.”
