Ex-Salinas officer pleads no contest in molest case
Lance Mosher seeks felony probation in plea deal
By VIRGINIA HENNESSEY
Herald Salinas Bureau
A former Salinas police officer has pleaded no contest to molesting a 12-year-old girl.
Lance Mosher, 45, entered the plea late Wednesday on the condition he be sentenced to felony probation, which can carry up to one year in jail. Judge Russell Scott agreed he would
offer no opinion on the issue of Mosher serving any jail time on home confinement.
He will be sentenced Sept. 23.
Mosher worked at the Salinas Police Department from 2004 until he was placed on paid administrative leave following his arrest in September.
According to testimony at his preliminary hearing, the girl reluctantly told District Attorney Investigator Christina Gunter in September that Mosher had once touched her sexually, and made her touch him, sometime between late 2005 and spring 2006.
On two subsequent occasions, she told Gunter, Mosher kissed her in a way that "made her uncomfortable." Marina police Sgt. Jeff Carr testified that an emotional Mosher had confessed to a family member that he inappropriately touched the girl.
