Governor Hogan To Be Called As A Witness in Federal Fraud Trial of Former Aide

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan will be called as a witness in the federal fraud trial of Roy McGrath, his former chief of staff.

Hogan’s likely appearance before a jury in U.S. District Court in Baltimore is noted in court documents filed Tuesday according to The Daily Record.

The disclosure is part of a joint filing of proposed questions for prospective jurors. The filing provides a limited look at possible witnesses in McGrath’s trial. The document filed with the court notes the availability of a more complete witness list closer to trial. The Record says Hogan’s name would stand out because of his high-profile position as well as the rarity of a sitting Maryland governor being called as a witness in a criminal trial, which is scheduled to start on October 24th.

McGrath faces an eight-count federal indictment that includes charges of wire fraud, (including securing a $233,648 severance payment equal to one year of salary as the head of Maryland Environmental Service.) He also faces fraud and embezzlement charges connected to roughly $170,000 in expenses and failure to take vacation time while vacationing in Florida and on a cruise to Spain, France, and Italy. McGrath is also accused of falsifying a memo that reportedly shows that Hogan was informed of McGrath's severance and that the Governor signed off on it.
