Prosecutors say the drug trafficker confessed to owning the three kilograms of drugs to Mosley and signed a confession. After the search, Mosley remained in contact with the trafficker to secure cooperation with other criminal activity

Allegedly, the drug trafficker offered Mosley $15,000 in exchange for not pursuing criminal charges based on the drug seizure. Mosley agreed to the deal, prosecutors say.

On May 2, 2019, he collected $10,000 in cash that the drug dealer left in the backyard of an abandoned house. On May 23, 2019, Mosley accepted another $5,000 in cash left for him by the drug trafficker. In exchange, prosecutors say, Mosley gave the drug trafficker the original copy of his confession.
