Judge orders suspect to write book reports

SAN FRANCISCO, May 15 (UPI) -- A San Francisco man accused of trying to sell a grenade launcher was ordered released on bond on the condition he read each day and write book reports.

Otis Mobley Jr., 23, was indicted last month alongside cousin Khusar Mobley, 18, and Dmarce Hutcherson, 19, on charges of conspiracy to commit robbery, assault on a federal officer, robbery and a weapons violation, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday.

Prosecutors said the men arranged to sell a grenade launcher to an undercover agent with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives March 28 and the sale was actually a ruse for a planned robbery.

The men pulled guns on the undercover agent and attempted to rob him, but fellow agents joined him and Hutcherson was shot and wounded by an agent.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Kandis Westmore ruled April 23 for Mobley to be released on $150,000 bond and wear an ankle monitor with GPS tracking. Prosecutors appealed the ruling, saying Mobley is a flight risk, but U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers upheld the bond ruling Monday.

Rogers said a condition of Mobley's bond requires him to spend an hour reading books every day and at least a half an hour writing book reports.
