A registered sex offender, also accused of stealing a car from a dealership and taken into custody last month, was indicted Thursday for allegedly sexually abusing two young girls.


Christopher Mosely, 30, of Anchorage was charged with one count of sexual abuse of a minor and two counts of attempted sexual abuse of a minor, according to a statement from the Alaska Department of Law.


The girls’ grandmother reported the alleged abuse to the Anchorage Police Department, and APD took the children to Alaska Cares for forensic interviews and examinations.


If convicted, Mosely faces a sentence of 15 to 30 years in prison for second-degree sexual abuse of a minor and 12 to 20 years for second-degree attempted sexual abuse of a minor, the DOL says. He was previously convicted for sexual abuse of a minor following a 2011 arrest.


APD believes Mosely could have victimized or tried to victimize other children. Authorities encourage anyone with information to contact Anchorage police at 786-8900.
