Former Baltimore state attorney Marilyn Mosby was convicted Thursday of charges for lying about the finances of a business to improperly access retirement funds during the COVID-19 pandemic.

She got access to the money and used it to purchase two Florida homes.

Mosby was convicted by a federal jury on two counts of perjury, according to NBC News.

Prosecutors argued that she didn't have the right to get those funds due to provisions of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act. 

“This case is about a lawyer and a public servant who placed her own selfish interests above the truth,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Sean Delaney said to jurors during opening statements Monday, according to the outlet. 

Before her attorneys rested their case on Wednesday, Mosby declined to testify. 

After the verdict, she reportedly said, “I’m blessed. I don’t know what else to say."

She may face up to five years in prison for each charge, the New York Times reported.
