An Upshur County jury sentenced a Big Sandy man Tuesday to five years in prison for assault against a public servant and four years in prison for retaliation, according to a press release from Upshur County District Attorney Billy Byrd.
The defendant began to struggle with police and kicked a five gallon bucket, striking Deputy Scott Moore in the lower leg, the release stated. At the jail, Mosley continued his resistance and threatened vengeance against another police officer when Mosley was released from jail, the release stated.
Longview attorney Scott Novy represented the defendant. Byrd and Assistant District Attorneys Natalie Miller and Camille Henson prosecuted the case.
