Freddie Gray prosecutor once slam-dunked an argument on ‘Judge Judy’
The neighbor who wronged her was doomed from the start.
Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby is heading the prosecution of six police officers charged in the suspicious death of Freddie Gray. But today, Mosby is in the headlines for a legal matter of a more personal nature.
A 2000 Judge Judy clip recently surfaced depicting a 20-year-old Mosby battling it out with her neighbor before TV’s most famous retired New York family-court judge.
After returning home from summer break, Mosby discovered that her neighbor, Ryan Johnson, had trashed her college apartment. She appeared on the TV courtroom show seeking damages—and she had photographic evidence of the crime.
“Basically, my apartment was a wreck,” Mosby told Judge Judy, who is famous for not taking crap from no-good weasels like Johnson.
Ever the perceptive sleuth, Mosby deduced that Johnson, whose wife was pregnant at the time, must have held some sort of baby-themed party in Mosby’s apartment while she vacationed.
“You think a burglar would make a baby shower?” Judge Judy asked, clearly seeing right through Johnson’s pitiful attempts to conceal his transgression.
“Mr. Johnson, what you did to this young woman was wrong,” she said, delivering one of her classic scoldings. “You figured she is a college student, she has no way of fighting back, she has nothing else to do…You took advantage of her.” Booyah!
“Finally, Judge Judy, she finally gave me justice,” Mosby told the audience at home after being awarded $1,731.90.
