Ohio Man Sentenced to 40 Years in Federal Prison for Raping Boy at Fort Sill Army Post

Oklahoma City, OklahomaTERRANCE TRENT MOSLEY, 29, of Cleveland, Ohio, was sentenced today to 480 months in prison by the Honorable David L. Russell, announced Mark A. Yancey, United States Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma.


On January 26, 2017, Mosley, a civilian, pled guilty to orally and anally sodomizing a boy who was under the age of 12 at the Fort Sill Army Post in October 2015. Mosley lived with the family of the juvenile victim, who was the dependent of a soldier. At sentencing, Judge Russell noted that Mosley’s abuse of the boy had been forcible, painful, and repeated. The Court also considered Mosley’s threat to kill the boy if he reported the abuse and Mosley’s molestation of two other boys in the past. Judge Russell announced that the 40-year sentence would both punish Mosley and protect the public.


Upon release from prison, Mosley will be on supervised release for the rest of his life. He will also have to register as a sex offender.


This case is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Army Criminal Investigation Command, with assistance from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Brandon Hale and Jessica Cárdenas Jarvis prosecuted the case.
