Phoenix drug ring leader sentenced to 15 years
PHOENIX -- A man authorities said ran a crack cocaine ring that sold drugs out of a Phoenix neighborhood has been sentenced to nearly 15 years in prison.
The sentence for 52-year-old David Allen Mosley was announced on Thursday. Maricopa County Superior Court records show Mosley pleaded guilty to conspiracy to sell dangerous drugs and possession of cocaine base last week. Judge Peter Reinstein also noted that Mosley had a previous drug sales conviction and fined him $10,000.
According to the Arizona Attorney General's office, an undercover detective became suspicious after a car's custom license plates caught his attention.
An investigation by Phoenix police and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration led to the arrest of Mosley and more than 50 others.
