Marilyn Mosby is clearly comfortable in a courtroom. Fifteen years ago, when Mosby was a student at Tuskegee University, she suspected that a neighbor had broken into her apartment when she away and had, of all things a baby shower for his pregnant wife.

The NY Daily News Reports: 

The 35-year-old Baltimore City State’s Attorney might be in the spotlight now for filing charges against six cops in the death of Freddie Gray, but she first showed her legal acumen during an appearance on the reality court show 15 years ago.

A baby-faced Mosby, then 20-year-old college student Marilyn James, brought neighbor Ryan Johnson to the court of Judge Judith Sheindlin – and won a nearly $2,000 judgment for damages.

A Mosby spokeswoman confirmed her appearance on the show in 2000, when the current top prosecutor was an undergraduate at Tuskegee University in Alabama.

A native of inner-city Boston, Mosby went on to attend Boston College Law School. And of course, eventually she would marry fellow Tuskegee student Nick Mosby, now a Baltimore City Councilman, return with him to his hometown and become the Baltimore City State’s Attorney, where she was instrumental in the investigation that produced charges against the 6 police officers implicated in Freddie Gray, Jr.’s death.

    law: any written or positive rule or collection of rules prescribed under the authority of the state or nation, as by the people in its constitution.
    Crime: an action or an instance of negligence that is deemed injurious to the public welfare or morals or to the interests of the state and that is legally prohibited
    Criminal: person guilty of breaking the law
    Prosecutor: a person who prosecutes. Mrs. Mosby (in this case) can bring charges against criminals once arrested or detained, following all other legal requirement w/o violating said person’s civil and legal rights.
    Again Mrs. Mosby is not responsible for the criminal activity or the deaths of the 36 people that were killed in Baltimore. She is responsible for bringing their murderers or perpetrators to justice.

    “Is she any more capable and experienced prosecutor because she is black?” She is just as capable and experienced as anyone else in her same position, age and time of service and service record. Of course you avoided the real question.

  3. She did a great job winning her case on Judge Judy. However, she will probably lose big in the Baltimore 6 due to her rush to judgement based on political reasons and not prosecutorial judgement.

      Doubt she’ll lose, that’s why they’re crying for a change of venue. Don’t know where you’re from, but I live 25 miles north of Bmore. You do know one of six is cooperating i.e. singing like a bird.

    I LOVE court shows!!! Won all my money back from my hoodrat Section 8 loaded apt complex trying to fake damages. Peoples Court my fave! Take pics folks! Glad I moved out of B more….

    The citizens of B-more had better concern themselves with how capable she is with doing something about the sky rocketing murders of the young black men by other citizens rather that Judge Judy

    • Miss it on said:

      She’s not a cop. She is a prosecutor, she can only put the murderers away when they are caught. What do you expect her to do, and if you read the article, she was an undergrad student at the time.

      • jhuf on said:

        Read the article not interested in what she did then, more interested with her now prosecuting hardened thugs with the fervor she has in prosecuting the six cops
        The irony now is some of those 6 cops could have been on patrol and protected some of the 36
        DEAD citizens so far and counting

    • specialt757 on said:

      Do you dislike Mrs. Mosby because she’s black? As “Miss it” stated she is a prosecutor of the criminals, the police are the “overseers” so to speak, they catch the criminals and bring them in to be prosecuted. She has her role, and the mayor, city officials, and the police officers have theirs. She can’t be held responsible for the crimes committed by criminals. And that would be if she were republican, democrat, white, black, Hispanic, Asian, or other.

    • MD Guest on said:

      Mosby knows we’re watching for the thugs who murdered Phylicia Barnes and McKenzie to be locked up while she gives “political” speeches to keep B more from burning down!

  6. Follow the money it is the Police union contracts with the city and the powerful Fraternal order of police who are responsible for violent racist predator police. No changes will occur unless the unions and fraternal order of police say so. They have a contract that currently states that police officer can not and will not be held accountable for the murder of unarmed African americans or the mentally ill it called “Qualified Immunity”. In order to stop police violence we must abolish the police unions or defund them in order to hold police officers accountable for breaking the law. Solutions
