Former State Investigator Asks for Probe of Marilyn Mosby’s Travel and Consulting Business

A retired public corruption investigator has filed a complaint with the State Prosecutor against Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, requesting a probe into her tardy disclosure of her travel and consulting businesses.

James Cabezas, who spent three decades as Maryland’s chief investigator of public corruption, said he asked State Prosecutor Charlton T. Howard III to “initiate a criminal probe of alleged perjurious filing of [Mosby’s] state ethics financial disclosure statement.”

Omitting information on mandatory disclosure forms can result in perjury charges, if prosecutors can prove that a government employee or elected official knew they were required to report business interests and did not.
