Santa Maria man gets 15+ years-to-life for role in deadly DUI crash outside Arroyo Grande

Posted: Updated:

A Santa Maria man will spend more than 15 years-to-life behind bars after a judge handed down his sentence last week for causing a deadly hit-and-run crash outside Arroyo Grande.

Numerous victim-impact statements were read and heard during Friday's sentencing for William Mobley in a San Luis Obispo County courtroom, according to the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney's Office. 

The judge reportedly said in his 40-plus years, he had never seen a case with such aggravating factors. 

The 35-year-old was arrested on Sept. 15, 2016, after he crashed into two vehicles on the side of Highway 101 near El Campo Road, killing 68-year-old Richard Stabile of Santa Maria. 

Mobley was said to be under the influence when he fled the scene. He was later found by San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's deputies and taken into custody. 

Stabile and another driver, who sustained only minor injuries, were parked along the highway, waiting for a tow truck.

Charges against Mobley included second-degree murder due to two prior DUI convictions. 

Mobley was sentenced to 15 years-to-life for the murder charge, but before he begins serving that time, he will serve 10 years and 8 months for hit-and-run and great bodily injury, charges that stemmed from the driver who survived.
