Man serving 5 life sentences for killing game warden denied parole in Alabama

Mosher Hearing

The man convicted and sentenced for the 2002 killing of an Alabama Game Warden was not granted parole Tuesday after objections by the victim’s family, friends and coworkers.

David Ray Mosher, 63, was sentenced to five consecutive life sentences after he pleaded guilty to killing Alabama Game Warden Jimmy Dean Hutto on March 8, 2002.

At the time of his death, Hutto was assisting the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department, the 24th Judicial Circuit’s Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force and the Marion County Drug Task Force as they were serving a warrant in the Wayside community.

Mosher struck Hutto in the pelvis with a bullet when he fired a gun as the officers entered the home, and Hutto died of his injuries nearly three weeks later.

“The intention of that plea deal was to ensure that he lives the rest of his life behind bars,” Hamlin said. “Jimmy Hutto’s life was needlessly taken while he worked to keep his community safe. He was a dedicated public servant and a fine officer. But more importantly, Jimmy Dean Hutto was a father, a son and a brother. This office will stand with his family and fellow law enforcement officers to make sure his killer serves his full sentence of life in prison.”
