Marilyn Mosby’s trial may not start until October, according to a court document filed on Friday.
Maryland U.S. Attorney Erek Barron filed a joint status report to inform the court that the government and the defense will be available for trial starting on Oct. 31.
Working back from that trial date, both sides proposed a schedule for pretrial filings and proceedings as follows.
– May 1: Deadline for the parties to meet-and-confer regarding expert witnesses and pretrial motions
– June 1: Deadline for expert disclosures
– June 30: Deadline for the filing of pretrial motions and for supplemental expert disclosures
– July 14: Deadline for the filing of responses to pretrial motions and for the filing of motions to exclude experts and supplement expert disclosures
– July 21: Deadline for the filing of replies to pretrial motions
– July 28: Deadline for the filing of responses to motions to exclude experts and supplement expert disclosures
– Aug. 4: Deadline for the filing of replies to motions to exclude experts and supplement expert disclosures
– Sept. 8: Motions hearing
– Sept. 15: Deadline to file motions in limine and to submit jointly proposed jury instructions, a jointly proposed verdict form and jointly proposed voir dire
– Sept. 29: Deadline to file responses to motions in limine
– Oct. 6: Deadline to file replies to motions in limine
– Oct. 20: Hearing on motions in limine and pretrial conference
– Oct. 30: Final pretrial conference
The judge will have to sign off on the proposed schedule.
The case against Baltimore’s former prosecutor:
Mosby was indicted in January 2022 on federal charges of perjury when she withdrew money from her deferred compensation accounts, saying she was facing financial hardships because of the COVID-19 pandemic and making a false statement on a loan application. Prosecutors said Mosby lied to avoid paying taxes on the money.
Mosby faces 20 years in prison if convicted on the four federal charges she faces.
