RENO — On March 31, 2010, detectives assigned to the Northern Nevada Repeat Offender Program were notified that R.O.P. target Samuel Moore was being paroled from the Nevada Department of Corrections. Moore served five years for burglary, identity theft and uttering a forged instrument. About one month later he absconded his parole while still owing in excess of $55,000 in restitution.  

On Sept. 28, 2010, Reno PD auto theft and burglary detectives saw Moore in a stolen vehicle and attempted to take him into custody. Moore violently fought with the detectives but was ultimately arrested without serious injury. 

Further investigative efforts led to Moore being charged with 20 felony crimes involving seven victims.  His bail was set at $100,000. 

Moore later pleaded guilty to six felony crimes. Moore is now a 15-time convicted felon who has served nine separate prison incarcerations. 

On March 25, less than one year after Moore was paroled from prison, he was sentenced in the 2nd Judicial District Court Department 9, with the Honorable Robert Perry presiding.

Deputy District Attorney Christian Wilson argued before the court that Moore has been given ample opportunity to abandon his criminal lifestyle and that he has been a plague to society. It was now time to protect the community and sentence Moore to prison for as long as possible. The Nevada Department of Parole and Probation also recommended that Moore be sentenced to a maximum term.

 Judge Perry agreed with the District Attorney as well as Parole and Probation and sentenced Moore to the following:

• Count 1 – Possession of a stolen motor vehicle  – 48 to 120 months prison.

• Count 2 – Burglary – 48 to 120 months prison

• Count 3 – Burglary – 48 to 120 months prison

• Count 4 – Possession of credit card w/o consent – 19 to 48 months prison

• Count 5 – Possession of stolen property  –  48 to 120 months prison

• Count 6 – Possession of stolen property – 24 to 60 months prison

All counts are to run consecutive and not concurrent to each other.  This sentence ensures that Moore will serve a 19.5 year minimum and a 49 year maximum term in the Nevada Department of Corrections.
