Man freed on bond must write book reports
RICHMOND, Calif. -- A man charged in an undercover sting operation in Northern California that ended in gunfire has been ordered released on bond on the condition that he read and write book reports.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that under the bond order, Otis Mobley, 23, would be required to spend an hour reading and a half-hour writing each day as he awaits trial on robbery and assault charges.
U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers allowed 23-year-old Otis Mobley to be freed Monday, although she delayed an order to allow prosecutors to appeal her decision.
Mobley and two others are accused of arranging to sell a grenade launcher for $1,000 to an undercover federal agent in Richmond, Calif. Hutcherson was shot and wounded by agents during the alleged meeting.
