Fraud trial of Hogan’s former chief of staff is delayed

October 22nd, 2022 by WCBC Radio

A federal trial involving Gov. Larry Hogan’s former chief of staff, Roy McGrath, has been put off, perhaps until next year. McGrath is accused of lying to top officials at the Maryland Environmental Service (MES) to win a $233,647 “severance” payment. He served as CEO of the quasi-governmental agency prior to accepting Hogan’s 2020 offer to join the administration.

He faces both state and federal charges and was scheduled to go on trial in U.S. District Court in Baltimore on Monday.
