Meet DA Nancy E. O'Malley

People v Christopher Edward Moss

On June 17, 2015, a jury convicted Christopher Edward Moss of kidnapping for the purposes of robbery and rape, and a series of robberies, burglaries, and sexual assaults, along with firearm enhancements.

In August of 2013, defendant Moss robbed two women at gun point as the victims entered the gates surrounding one of the women’s West Oakland home. Defendant Moss sexually assaulted both women while demanding entrance to the home. A neighbor’s call to 911 prompted defendant Moss to flee.

Two days later, defendant Moss committed another armed robbery and attempted robbery in East Oakland, victimizing a couple preparing to drive to work. The defendant brandished a firearm and repeatedly punched the man in the head with the intent to to steal the man’s belongings.

In the hours following this attack, defendant Moss and his accomplice kidnapped yet another woman in West Oakland as she took out her trash. The men forced the woman into her home and tried to subdue her with physical force. The victim broke free, running to the sidewalk, but the men intercepted her and dragged her towards their nearby car. Neighbors intervened, causing the defendant to flee in the getaway car. Defendant Moss was apprehended by Oakland only a few hours later.

Defendant Christopher Edward Moss is scheduled to be sentenced on August 21, 2015. The case was prosecuted by DDA Gemma Daggs with assistance from DA Inspectors Blair Alexander and Kendell Won, and Victim-Witness Advocates Kelli Sage and Maria Suniga.
