Convicted Democrat Marilyn Mosby Awarded No-Prison Sentence by Biden Judge

Convicted Democrat Marilyn Mosby Awarded No-Prison Sentence by Biden Judge

What happens when the criminal and the judge hearing her case share the same political ride? There is no stop by the prison, which is what Americans witnessed in the recent sentencing of a Maryland prosecutor.

Democratic former State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby of Baltimore, MD, was convicted last year on two counts of perjury and again in February of this year on one count of making a false mortgage application for buying a condominium in Long Boat Key, Florida. According to the Department of Justice (DOJ), Mosby faced a maximum of 10 years in prison for the perjury conviction and a maximum of 30 years in prison for the conviction over mortgage fraud, totaling to 40 years in prison for all her crimes.

But when Mosby was sentenced on Thursday (May 23), she did not get a single day in prison – thanks to U.S. District Judge Lydia Kay Griggsby, who was appointed to the court by Joe Biden in 2021. Judge Griggsby sentenced Mosby to only one year of home confinement, 100 hours of community service, and 3 years of supervised release. The prosecution has asked for a sentence of 20 months in prison for all of Mosby’s crimes of mortgage fraud and perjury.

Mosby’s crimes were defended by Democrats and the leftist media serving the Democratic Party before and after she was convicted by a federal jury. Earlier this month, Joy Reid of MSNBC had Mosby on her show where she would defend the convicted criminal as a victim who was politically targeted.

A look at the official profile of Judge Griggsby shows that she has quite a history of serving Democrats. In 2009, Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy appointed her the Chief Counsel for Privacy and Information Policy for the Senate Judiciary Committee. In 2014, President Obama appointed Griggsby a Judge of the United States Court of Federal Claims.

In sentencing Mosby, the Associated Press wrote of Judge Griggsby:

She also noted that her crimes didn’t involve any taxpayer money and said the prospect of separating Mosby from her two young daughters “weighed very heavily” on her decision.

Conservatives on X (Twitter) reacted to the slap on the wrist for Mosby by the Biden appointee by calling out the favoritism. Independent journalist called it Democrat privilege.

MAGA conservative Sheri wrote that no jail time for Mosby shows that “prison is reserved for Christians and Trump supporters.”

Conservative patriot Matthew Nichol wrote that Hunter Biden is likely to get a sentence similar to or even less than what Mosby got.

    Failed Pakistani fake journalist Dempsey, aka The Dumpster, should not be employed. He whines about a Biden judge, when he himself was appointed by a raving Trumplicant to write under another author’s name he assumed for himself. He is very biased. And no professional journalist either, quite the opposite.

    An amazingly bad journalist, I am guessing no education in that regard whatsoever. A hack. Here he has got a politician convicted for loan fraud and yet he touches not on Trump’s recent loan fraud case in comparison where Trump and his co-defendants committed fraud with his financial statements and the Democrat Judge found Trump liable on five of the six remaining claims: falsifying business records, issuing false financial statements, conspiracy to commit insurance fraud and conspiracy to falsify business records. Trump ASKED for the judge to rule versus a trial by jury. Trump got absolutely zero jail time, no house arrest, no supervised release. Nothing except a huge fine. Gee, lost that one in the Dumpster, eh. Where was the outrage over no jail time then, Mr. Hypocrite.

    This time he opens with “What happens when the criminal and the judge hearing her case share the same political ride? There is no stop by the prison….” He is basing this astounding fake conclusion on a single case. Hell, with Trump judges, we can’t even get to court…..

    He continues: “U.S. District Judge Lydia Kay Griggsby, who was appointed to the court by Joe Biden in 2021” which is true. However:
    Griggsby received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1990 from the University of Pennsylvania. Juris Doctor in 1993 from the Georgetown University Law Center.

    93-95: the law firm of DLA Piper LLP
    95-98 trial attorney in the Commercial Litigation Branch of the Civil Division of the United States Department of Justice
    98-2004 Assistant United States Attorney, DC.
    04-14 Counsel: US Senate Select Committee on Ethics, Judiciary, Privacy Policy

    14-21 Obama nomination to Judge of the United States Court of Federal Claims
    53-36 cloture vote: confirmed by voice vote — yeah, it was that bipartisan.
    21- present District Judge, United States District Court for the District of Maryland. 16-6 committee vote, bipartisan — Grassley voted for her. Final vote: 59-39 — bipartisan, a dozen Republicans.

    Apparently, professional politicians of the Republican do not agree with The Dumpster. Apparently she is eminently qualified as judged on a bipartisan vote based on education and experience. Much more experience than the Dumpster has in journalism.

    The case really has no precedent with covid rules adding in for a difficult comparison or precedent. She, unlike Trump, has no other crimes in the record. The only precedent was a Baltimore official not paying taxes who got 20 months in prison. While the case had a combined chance of 30 years, the prosecutors asked for 20 months in prison and the judge ruled, given no supposed harm (which did not work for either Trump or tax guy and is not true IMO. IMO, there’s harm.) And she got 36 months of supervised release conjoined with 12 months of ankle-bracelet house arrest. One would not expect the 20 months, but one would not expect zero jail time either. IMO.

    I have no issue with no jail time, but not free either, given no victims (here it would be the other folks NOT getting the money she took from the budget), remorse and contrition. She has no remorse and is appealing meaning she accepts not her guilt. She should have gotten some time, IMO. But based on that, not Dempsey’s unproven, uncollaborated horseshit.

    Hopefully she will be disbarred too and can look for a new virtual career with WAH while she reflects on her choices.

    But the Dumpster tying this to Joe Biden’s selection of a qualified judge supported on both sides of the aisle is more Dumpster propaganda aimed at making us hate each other based on political beliefs. That’s just bogus and, worst yet, the only proof he offers is your hate and this one case. He needs to feed our hatreds to line his pockets with sliver. Hate the Dumpster instead, send him packing to Pakistan and he can go all Trump over there.

        Also that same bible you read talks about the risks of judging others – that you will then be judged in the same manner. So enjoy your stay with the wicked. 🙂

      Kr, thank God you can’t condemn them for their thoughts, ideas, and words, as you do to others what will be done to you because, obviously, you don’t do unto.

      Must be fun to live in a country feeling the way you do about half the people in it. Glad to provide you a target to out yourself. Now, back to your rock, please slither.

    Ernestine, you are correct when you say, “What happens when the criminal and the judge hearing her case share the same political ride? There is no stop by the prison, which is what Americans witnessed in the recent sentencing of a Maryland prosecutor.” This is exactly what is happening in the Trump Mar-a-largo documents case! Judge Cannon is running interference in her own case for Trump!

    I do find it amazing that the conservative right has been decrying how Biden separated families when he was VP. Now this lady got this non-prison sentence so she can keep her two children’s lives stable and keep the family together. Now conservatives seem to want to break up this family and send the kids where?

    I also find it interesting that she is the Dem version of Trump claiming political targeting. And tax payer money was not involved. These are Trump arguments!

    As an Independent/Unaffiliated voter, I think she could have gotten some prison time personally, maybe do five to ten years of weekends and holidays in prison and let the children go to their dad or hire a nanny on weekends. And she should have gotten a significant fine of say $20,000, and fifteen years of probation as a way of serving out the remaining years of her penalty..
