Today, Hamilton County Prosecutor Melissa Powers announced the indictment of Charles Mosley (DOB 7/6/63) for trying to have a witness murdered.
Mosley was indicted for one count of Conspiracy to Commit Murder (F1), Attempted Murder (F1), and Intimidation of a Witness (F3). If convicted on all charges, he faces a maximum possible sentence of 14-19.5 years in prison.
In 2022, Mosley was indicted for two counts of Rape (F1), two counts of Felonious Assault (F2), and one count of Aggravated Menacing (M1) after he assaulted and raped his ex-girlfriend. On September 13, 2023, Mosley pleaded guilty to one count of Felonious Assault, but denied the counts of Rape. The Rape counts have been set for trial in January of 2024. Mosley faces an additional possible sentence of 11 years in prison on the pending Rape counts.
In October, Mosley attempted to withdraw his guilty plea to the Felonious Assault charge, but that request was denied and he was sentenced to 6-9 years in prison.
While awaiting trial in the Hamilton County Justice Center, Mosley sought out another inmate to kill his victim for $1,500 to prevent her from testifying against him.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Melissa Powers commented, “I’m relieved this plan was discovered and stopped before any more harm could come to this victim. Her remarkable courage in the face of such evil is profoundly inspiring.
This man, who brutally attacked and raped his victim, then orchestrated her murder to escape justice, will now go to prison, hopefully for the rest of his life.”
