Mr. Moxley, I am a long time friend and former girlfriend of your "serial killer" Oscar Moriel. I was not surprised to read your findings. As a matter of fact, he called me this week to ask for a copy of the article. For many years I have questioned Oscar as to the delay in his attempted murder case and he always gave me the same answer, "They [prosecutors] don't have shit with this case. The feds want me, so they're holding me here." Although Oscar and I communicate regularly, he never has gone into detail regarding either case. I quickly knew that some shady shit has been going on in OCDA for almost a decade, with regards to the handling of information in his case and special privileges he was given while at OCJ.
I will disregard the names with which you refer to him in your article ("serial killer" and "sociopath"). I will go out on a limb and say it makes for a good headline and that your attack on my friend was necessary to support your premise. Agreed? I believe my friend was a pawn for the SAPD, and they took advantage of his desperation at the time. They enticed him with the hope of freedom some day (which they continue to do) and Oscar took the bate.
He is a man who undoubtedly made some very poor choices in his life. He has always been very remorseful when talking to me about events from his past and his prior convictions. Should you ever have the opportunity to meet or speak with Oscar Moriel, you will be pleasantly surprised to find a bright, funny man who's interests range from American History to Foreign Politics, and Ancient Biblical cultures. He is a man who can carry a conversation in nearly any topic, and who's humor can make you laugh so hard that your belly will ache. His burdens are his own and are his scars from life.
