Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn announces that a jury has found 28-year-old Mohamed Nasir, also known as “Cash” or “Uncle Cash,” of Buffalo guilty of one count of Predatory Sexual Assault Against a Child (Class “A-II” felony). The defendant, who was convicted of the highest sustainable charge, was acquitted of all other counts in the indictment against him. Jurors rendered their decision this afternoon after less than three hours of deliberation following a three-day trial.

Between on or about December 22, 2020 and December 24, 2020, the defendant, being older than 18-years-old, engaged in sexual conduct with a child who was less than 11-years-old. The crime occurred at a residence in the City of Buffalo. The defendant was known to the victim.

Nasir faces a maximum of 25 years to life in prison when he is sentenced before State Supreme Court Justice M. William Boller on Wednesday, August 31, 2022 at 9:30 a.m. He continues to remain held without bail.

DA Flynn commends Detective Jennifer Vaccaro and Detective Keith Fitzner of the Buffalo Police Department, New York State Police, Child Advocacy Center and ECDA Confidential Criminal Investigator Mike Nigrelli for their work in this investigation.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Patrick E. Swanson of the Special Victims/Domestic Violence Bureau and Assistant District Attorney David M. Zak of the Felony Trials Bureau.
