Maryland sex fugitive arrested in Florida

April 24, 2010|By Tony Holt | Hernando Today (MCT)

MASARYKTOWN -- A man charged in the 2008 rape of a teenage girl near Salisbury, Md., was arrested Thursday by Hernando County Sheriff's deputies.

Randy Keith Mosley, 51, was staying at a family member's house at 436 Korbus Road near the corner of County Line Road and U.S. 41 and was taken into custody shortly after 10:30 pm., deputies said.

In early 2008, Mosley raped a 16-year-old girl, according to detectives with the Maryland State Police.

The victim pleaded for him to stop and tried to fight him off, but the bigger, stronger Mosley forcibly had sex with her, according to a media release.

Sgt. Donna Black, a spokeswoman with the Hernando County Sheriff's Office, didn't know the details behind Mosley's capture, but an arrest report revealed the Maryland State Police gave local authorities a tip that the suspect was staying at the Masaryktown house.

Mosley has been charged with second-degree rape, second-degree assault, second-degree sex offense and fourth-degree sex offense.

He faces up to 20 years if convicted of the rape charge, according to Maryland law.

Mosley was still being held at the Hernando County Jail in Brooksville as of Friday morning. He waived extradition and will be transported to Wicomico County, Md., "in the near future to stand trial," said Sgt. David Owens, a state police spokesman.
