Former Baltimore Mayor Faces Federal Fraud Charges

Former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh is facing federal charges related to a scheme to enrich herself through sales of her self-published children’s book series, according to a grand jury indictment made public Wednesday.

Pugh, 69, who was expected to turn herself in to U.S. Marshals Thursday before her first court appearance, resigned in May, citing health issues.

While Pugh was a board member of the University of Maryland Medical System, the medical system spent $500,000 to fund the purchase of roughly 100,000 books from Pugh’s company, Healthy Holly LLC.

She was indicted Nov. 14 and charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, seven counts of wire fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and two counts of tax evasion.
