Marilyn Mosby’s lead defense attorney explained his conflict in representing her in new court documents obtained by 11 News.

Last week, Mosby’s entire defense team asked to withdraw from the case, citing conflicts of interest. They asked the judge in Mosby’s federal case to appoint a public defender.

Prosecutors responded by saying there was no conflict of interest.

Wednesday’s filing from A. Scott Bolden explains the conflict, saying that because the judge is considering criminal contempt charges against him for his conduct during the case so far, he will have a conflict of protecting himself while also trying to provide the best defense possible for Mosby.
