Dunbar Man Sentenced to Five Years in Prison for Drug and Gun Crimes

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – United States Attorney Mike Stuart announced that Tajae Dasjuan Mosley, 27, of Dunbar was sentenced today to 60 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine and being an unlawful drug user in possession of firearms.  Stuart commended the efforts of the FBI, the West Virginia State Police, the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department, and the United States Postal Inspection Service. 

“Selling meth at an apartment complex in Dunbar,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart. “Mosley’s conviction is good for Dunbar and the Kanawha Valley.  We want the Mosleys’ of the world away from our families and our children. Any time we can take a meth dealer off the streets, it’s a win for our communities and for law enforcement.”

Mosley pled guilty in November 2018, admitting that from at least November 2017 until his arrest on July 10, 2018 he had been distributing methamphetamine in and around apartment complexes on Smoot Avenue and Howard Avenue in Dunbar.  On July 10, 2018, police executed federal arrest warrants in several locations in Dunbar including Mosley’s residence where they seized three firearms.  Mosley admitted that he was prohibited from possessing the firearms due to be a habitual drug user. 

United States District Judge Irene C. Berger imposed the sentence.  Assistant United States Attorney Joshua C. Hanks handled the prosecution.
