State of Florida v. Christian Mosco
Clerk Number: 2019 307132 CFDB
Mosco sentenced to ten years for impersonating Assistant State Attorneys, filing a false court document
DAYTONA – This morning, a Daytona Beach man was sentenced to ten years in a state prison facility for several charges, including: two counts of falsely impersonating an officer, a third-degree felony, practicing law without proper authority, a third-degree felony, two counts of fraudulent use of personal identification information, a third-degree felony, criminal process under color of law, a third-degree felony, and uttering a forgery, a third-degree felony.
On September 26, 2019, Christian Mosco used the personal identification information of two Assistant State Attorneys to file a ‘no information’ in an attempt to drop charges against himself. The Volusia County Clerk of Court’s office noticed the suspicious document and contacted the Office of the State Attorney. Upon investigation, it was determined that the document was fraudulent. The Daytona Beach Police Department obtained a search warrant of Mosco’s computer and found the fraudulent document.
Assistant State Attorney Sarah Thomas prosecuted the case before Judge Dennis Craig. The agreed-to plea also included previous charges of threats of extortion (2019 303095 CFDB) and burglary and petit theft (2019 305618 CFDB.)
State Attorney R.J. Larizza had this to say about the case: “The defendant employed threats, scams and theft in an attempt to further his criminal plans. As a result he received a ten (10) year prison sentence. Had he used his talents for positive and law-abiding activities, he would not be on his way to the State Prison System.”
