Mohsen was accused of killing his brother's friend 3 years ago , at the age of 15, during a soccer game after the alleged victim and his younger brother get in to a fight. He was consequently sentenced to death by hanging. The verdict was approved by Iran's superior court but the file was sent to the mediation committee which resulted in pardon by victim's family on December 25, 2007.

Mohsen's name was not among the names of the 80 children facing execution in Iran , published by Stop Child Executions Campaign. Iran is reported to have more than 170 children facing execution, most of them publicaly unknown.
