Former Hogan chief of staff faces new indictment charge

June 29th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

More legal trouble for Governor Larry Hogan’s former chief of staff.  A  new indictment adds a charge of falsifying documents and another wire fraud charge against Roy McGrath, related to a more than $233,000 severance payment he received from Maryland Environmental Service after he became the governor's chief of staff in June of 2020.

WBAL reports prosecutors say McGrath created a document that showed Gov. Hogan approved his severance payment, something Hogan denied.

McGrath resigned as Hogan's chief of staff after less than three months on the job.

He already faces charges of theft, wire fraud wire taping and filing false documents.
