A federal jury convicted a Richmond man Thursday in connection with an armed attempted robbery of an undercover federal agent in Richmond last March. Khusar Mobley, 19, was convicted on charges of assault on a federal officer, robbery and brandishing a firearm during a violent crime in federal court in Oakland, according to U.S. Department of Justice officials. Federal prosecutors said Mobley and two co-defendants, Otis Mobley and D’Marce Hutcherson, planned to meet with an Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent, who was posing as a gun seller, in Richmond on March 28, 2012. According to federal prosecutors, Mobley brandished a loaded gun at the ATF officer, along with Hutcherson. Another co-defendant, Otis Mobley, allegedly orchestrated the attempted robbery, which ended with the undercover agent shooting Hutcherson, who survived. Otis Mobley and Hutcherson both pleaded guilty in connection with the crime last month and have been sentenced to 114 months and 104 months in prison, respectively, prosecutors said. Khusar Mobley’s sentencing is set for Oct. 23 in Oakland.
