Trial on disorderly conduct to resume Friday for husband of Allegheny County controller
A jury trial is set to resume Friday morning in Detroit regarding disorderly conduct charges filed against the husband of Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner, prosecutors said.
Khari Mosley, 53, of Pittsburgh’s Point Breeze neighborhood is facing two misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace stemming from a March 6 confrontation with police at a Detroit hotel.
Mosley is married to Wagner, who is facing a felony charge of resisting and obstructing the police and a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct stemming from the fracas that night.
The pair told Tribune-Review on Tuesday that they were looking forward to making their cases in court.
“The falsifications here are glaring and appalling,” Wagner said. “Basically, we’ve been subjected to character assassination and misinformation.”
“We want the public to know everything that happened that night from beginning to end,” Mosley said.
Jury selection for Mosley’s misdemeanor trial was completed Wednesday.
On Thursday, prosecutors and defense attorneys delivered opening statements and the prosecution presented evidence, including surveillance video and testimony from a hotel security guard.
The second day of the trial is scheduled to begin 10 a.m. Friday before Judge Kenneth King, Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Maria Miller said.
Wagner’s trial is set to start Nov. 12, a week after Election Day.
If Wagner is convicted of a felony, she could face removal from office.
