A Jenks teenager who is serving a life prison term for murder is seeking court relief based on a contention that he was “misled” by his attorney when he entered his guilty plea.
Signing his own application for post-conviction relief, 16-year-old Joshua Scott Mooney asserts in a court document filed this week that his public defenders did not advise him of his right to appeal a court order denying him consideration as a youthful offender.
In the filing, Mooney says he is applying to have counsel appointed to represent him and that “I believe I am entitled to relief.’’ He indicates that he wants court-appointed counsel to assist with his application for an appeal of the youthful offender ruling.
First Assistant District Attorney Doug Drummond said Mooney is entitled to this appeal and that applications for post-conviction relief are not unusual.
Mooney was 14 when he fatally shot Mary Brice Escue, 47, of Reno, Nevada, at her parents’ home in Jenks on Dec. 17, 2012. He told authorities that he had broken into the house to steal money and then held Escue at gunpoint before killing her.
Last October, Tulsa County Special Judge Cliff Smith denied Mooney’s request to be treated as a youthful offender, and the state Court of Criminal Appeals upheld that ruling in January.
Mooney pleaded guilty April 4 and was convicted as an adult. He is in Department of Corrections custody at the Joseph Harp Correctional Center in Lexington.
A plea agreement stipulated that Mooney, in pleading guilty, got life sentences with the possibility of parole on murder and robbery counts. He got a seven-year term for burglary, with all sentences running concurrently and equivalent for prison purposes to one life term.
Accepting the plea deal meant Mooney avoided the possibility of a no-parole life prison sentence or consecutive sentences.
His life sentence requires that he serve at least 38 years and three months before becoming eligible for parole.
If he had been categorized as a youthful offender, his sentence would have been much lighter.
