Mosley Released From Jail Pending Trial

Los Alamos Magistrate Judge Pat Casados released Carl “Wayne” Mosley, 67, of Los Alamos on his own recognizance Tuesday pending trial on charges of criminal sexual penetration of a child under 13, criminal sexual contact of a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Mosley was arrested following an investigation conducted by Los Alamos Police Det. Matthew Lyon along with Child Youth and Families Department representatives and a forensic interviewer.

During Mosley’s first appearance Nov. 17 Judge Casados opted to keep Mosley in jail until he obtained a public defender and she had a chance to discuss his status with Deputy District Attorney Kent Wahlquist.

During that hearing, Mosley revealed he was homeless and had been sleeping is his car for more than two months. Judge Casados expressed concern that he had no ties to the community and could just turn the ignition on his car and leave. She also expressed her concern that Mosley had access to firearms in the vehicle he is living in and another vehicle at his former residence.

Judge Casados said she released Mosley on “very, very strict conditions of release”. She said she had consulted with Wahlquist and that he didn’t want to ask for a dangerousness hearing in District Court to have Mosley remain incarcerated pending trial.

A preliminary hearing has been set for Dec. 15 for Mosley.
