(WEAA)— Marilyn Mosby’s State’s Attorney’s Office is having staffing issues.

According to the Baltimore Sun, a number of current and former prosecutors in her office “spoke on condition of anonymity out of fear of retribution”.

The report states they revealed the work environment consists of grueling hours, large caseloads and a depleted morale which has driven people out.

On Friday, Mosby sent a letter to Baltimore City Councilman Eric Costello acknowledging that burnout is playing a role in driving departures, and stating that "unsustainable caseloads, wages, compensation, and the lack of work life balance" were all to blame.

Marilyn Mosby is currently facing four federal charges: two perjury and two false mortgage application statements.

Hassan Giordano, owner of DMVDaily Media and political strategist joins Gabe Ortis for the discussion.
