Friday court session sends domestic abuser to state prison for two year set
A 33-year-old Fort Smith man who has been in jail after his arrest two months ago on various charges bought himself a ticket to the Arkansas Department of Corrections with a plea deal on Friday in Sebastian County Circuit Court.
Christopher Ian Mosley, who was on the docket for three felonies including Aggravated Assault on a family or Household Member, Domestic Battery in the Second Degree Causing Physical Injury and False Imprisonment in the First Degree, entered a guilty plea on all three crimes and was sentenced to two years in the ADC with four years suspended by the court.
Justice in the crime came just four days shy of sixteen months after the February, 2020 arrest by the Fort Smith Police Department, which also saw a felony Theft by Receiving charge among the original counts. The theft charges were not prosecuted by the Sebastian County Prosecutors Office,
Mosley was released on a $4000 legally sufficient bond after that arrest, but failed to make his August court appearance which led to failure to appear charges. He was arrested again in April of this year on that charge as well as for Contempt and Criminal Impersonation along with a misdemeanor Petition to Revoke.
.His Sebastian County- information also lists a 2019 arrest for misdemeanor domestic battery.
Moley was given credit for time served in addition to his concurrent sentencing and faces the standard $60 per month payment starting 90-days after his release to cover court costs and fees. He is also on a no-contact order with his victims.
