America's Dumbest Criminal 2013
Sheriff's deputies say Mosley walked into Discount Gun Sales on Southwest Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway around 4 p.m. Thursday with a bat in hand and smashed a display case.
But they say when Mosley tried to steal a gun, the store manager simply pulled out his own personal firearm and pointed it straight at the would-be-robber. The manager then yelled some orders at the guy and got him to drop the baseball bat, the gun he had tried to take and a nine-inch long knife he had on him.
When sheriff's deputies arrived, they found Mosley on the floor being held at gunpoint by the manager. They handcuffed Mosley on the spot and took him into custody on charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree theft, unlawful possession of a firearm and second-degree criminal mischief. Bail was set at $250,000.

State District Judge Carlos Cortez arrested on assault charge at his Dallas apartment
The charge against Cortez, a civil court judge, is a third degree felony, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
Cortez, a Democrat, was first elected in 2006. He is up for re-election next year.
He filed a defamation suit against Dallas lawyer Randy Johnston in 2010 and has since spent more than $100,000 of campaign funds trying to keep some details of the suit sealed. The Dallas Morning News has previously reported that some of the documents seem to pertain to the use of drugs and prostitutes. Cortez denies them, the News reported.
