Second-Striker Convicted of Attempted Robbery, Burglary, Felon in Possession of Gun
DATE: August 12, 2022
CASE: Anthony Mosqueda (Case #19FE017054)
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Matthew Moore, Career Criminal Prosecution Unit
Anthony Mosqueda was convicted by a jury of attempted robbery, two counts of burglary and being a felon in possession of a firearm. It was also found true that Mosqueda has two prior strike convictions for residential burglary and assault with a firearm.
On February 24, 2019, Mosqueda and three other perpetrators broke into a house when the victim was home. When they were unable to gain access to the victim’s locked room, they fled. Two days later, Mosqueda entered a second house while the victim was at work and stole property. Surveillance video from that incident showed Mosqueda was armed with a firearm, which he pointed at the victim’s dog. The firearm was never recovered, but photos on Mosqueda’s cell phone showed he illegally possessed multiple firearms. Mosqueda was on parole when he committed the offenses in this case.
Mosqueda faces a maximum sentence of 61 years to life in prison. Sentencing is set for October 28, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 13 before the Honorable Matthew Gary.
