Mulct means ( mulct something of ) - Take money or possession from (someone) by fraudulent means.
In this context, preposition " of " is understandable with this word.
Example : Before he left for the north, Henry mulcted the citizens of 500 marks.
But today i read a new usage that is 'mulcted with' . There are some sentences in the same context
1.The petitioner was greatly prejudiced as she had been mulcted with these proceedings out of political rivalry.
2.For example, if an employee is involved in embezzlement of funds or is found indulging in demanding and accepting illegal gratification, the employer cannot be mulcted with full back wages on the acquittal of the person by a criminal court, unless it is found that the prosecution is malicious,” a Bench of Justices L. Nageswara Rao and M.R. Shah observed in a recent verdict.
Can you please clarify these two sentences to me. In the first sentence, I am thinking that mulcted with means deceived with. Second one is very unclear to me.
