COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A man from Chadbourn will spend up to three decades in jail followed by five years of supervised release for crimes he committed in Evergreen in 2010.
John Moore was sentenced in court Wednesday. The court "varied upward in imposing the sentence" due Moore's extensive and violent criminal history and the violent acts involving this case.
Based on evidence presented at the trial, Moore broke into an Evergreen, NC home March 1, 2010.
The victim, whose gender is unknown, then arrived at the home with his or her grandchild and parked in the driveway. Leaving the child in the vehicle, he or she approached the residence, where the doorframe had been broken and the door was open.
The victim proceeded to enter the home, where he or she came across Moore. Moore forced the victim to the ground at gunpoint, put a gun to the victim's head and then dragged him or her around the home by the hair.
