Inmate returns to Clay County with hopes of earning trade skills certification


Posted

ORANGE PARK – An inmate at the Raiford Prison Work Camp returned to Clay County on Feb. 9 to face a 2020 marijuana, burglary and grand theft charges, a step necessary to remove restrictions to continue earning his special skill trade certification.

Eric Patrick Mosely, 36, of Jacksonville, was sentenced to three years in prison for robberies in Duval and Clay County. He said he agreed to a plea agreement in 2022 that allowed the sentences from both counties to be served concurrently. Three weeks later, Clay County revoked his bond and charged him with failure to appear after he was arrested in Duval for two counts of burglary. That detainer restricts Mosely from leaving prison property to earn his certification.

Mosely sent a two-page letter to the Clay Court on Jan. 17 asking to appear in front of a Clay County judge to have the detainer removed.

In the letter, Mosely wrote: “I’m trying to utilize the term I have to serve productively, so that I can become a more productive citizen in society once I’m released.”

Mosely was to appear for a review on Feb. 12, but it was continued until March 11.
