St. Louis, MO – Victor Mora, 33, of St. Louis, was charged in a federal indictment charging him with one felony count of interference with commerce by threats or violence.
According to the indictment, on or about May 29, 2018, Robbery victims “T.D.” and “A.A.” were employees at the Goodfellow Laundromat, 5950 Goodfellow Boulevard when they were robbed at gunpoint by Mora. Mora threatened physical violence to the two victims in order to obtain cash.
If convicted, the charge of interference with commerce by threat or violence carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. In determining the actual sentences, a judge is required to consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide recommended sentencing ranges.
Mora is currently in state custody and will be brought to federal court shortly to answer the new charges. The prosecution of Mora is being coordinated with the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office.
As is always the case, charges set forth in the indictment are merely accusations and do not constitute proof of guilt. Every defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty.
This case is being investigated by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Jennifer Roy is handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
