Roy McGrath had died

McGrath was considered a fugitive by the US Marshals and the FBI, who offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to his arrest. He was scheduled to stand trial on federal charges stemming from his position as head of the Maryland Environmental Service. Prosecutors alleged that McGrath fraudulently obtained a severance payment of $233,647 and forged documents. He later left his post as head of the Maryland Environmental Service to take over as Hogan’s chief of staff in 2020. However, he only served as chief for 11 weeks before resigning in August 2020.

In October 2021, McGrath was indicted and pleaded not guilty to all charges and was granted pretrial release by a judge on the condition that he appear at future court hearings. He was facing up to 100 years in federal prison on charges that involved stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the state government and illegally recording former Maryland Republican Gov. Hogan. Also, when he failed to appear for his trial in Baltimore, US District Judge Deborah Boardman issued a warrant for the fugitive’s arrest. The Naples, Florida, resident was wanted on charges of failure to appear, fraud and theft of funds.

Amid the nationwide manhunt for McGrath, a tell-all book titled ‘Betrayed: The True Story of Roy McGrath’ was released last week. The book, which has already ranked as a best-seller, is highly critical of the former governor, describing Hogan as secretive, treacherous and nicknamed him “Lyin’ Larry,” CBS reports.Read More…..
