Randall “Herbie” Moss found dead in federal prison cellPosted by Jack Howser on Wednesday, September 19th, 2012 @ 11:46 am.
Randall “Herbie” Moss, 49, of the well-known Moss family in Harrisburg (whose father established a legacy for the multitude of kids, but many of the boys pissed it away when they got caught up in drugs years later) was found dead in his cell either late last night or early this morning, from unknown causes.
While our sources haven’t advised of where Moss was being held, online information shows that Moss was most recently incarcerated at Fort Dix, New Jersey’s FCI.
Moss was originally incarcerated in federal prison on 2000 federal charges of Conspiracy to Distribute Narcotics (crack cocaine), Distribution of Crack Cocaine, and Unlawful Transport of Firearms/Felon in Possession of a firearm.
Seventeen counts of either Conspiracy to Distribute Narcotic (cocaine and crack cocaine) or Selling, Distributing or Dispensing Narcotics (crack cocaine or cocaine) were later filed against him in superseding indictments, and were later dismissed. The original indictments against him aren’t available online because of how old they are. However, available online documents show the names involved in the matter (presumably in the conspiracy portion) as William Moss, Chad Sanders, Brad Taylor and Tyree Neal.
Moss’ jury trial on the matter was begun May 8, 2001. Court documents show that Moss went through a lot of machinations to get his guilty verdicts overturned and to have a new trial, but he was nevertheless sentenced on one conspiracy and the delivery charges on August 13, 2001, to a 1080 total months, which included 480 months on the conspiracy, and 240 months on delivery.
The case was under continuous appeal and in fact, in the most recent activity in it (Nov. 15, 2011), there was a motion for retroactive application of sentencing guidelines to the crack cocaine offense filed. There was movement toward appointing a federal public defender in the case, but that’s kind of where it dropped off.
