Parker Man and Woman Sentenced in Connection with Robbery After Stealing Victim’s Vehicle

PHOENIX, Ariz. – On Monday, Andre Stephan Stevens, 21, and Tenelle Inez Moses, 32, both of Parker, Arizona, were sentenced by United States District Judge Michael T. Liburdi. Stevens, who previously pleaded guilty to Robbery, was sentenced to 126 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release. Moses, who previously pleaded guilty to Accessory After the Fact, was sentenced to 46 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release.

On October 29, 2019, Stevens assaulted the victim outside of Moses’ residence in Parker. After the assault, Moses and Stevens drove the victim’s vehicle to a remote location near a casino in Parker. The victim was in the back seat when Stevens told Moses to pull over. Moses stopped the vehicle and Stevens threw the victim out of the victim’s own vehicle. Moses and Stevens then fled the scene in the victim’s vehicle. Stevens later led law enforcement on a high-speed chase, driving the victim’s vehicle with Moses in the passenger seat. The police pursuit was abandoned due to safety concerns, but Stevens and Moses were arrested later that morning. These offenses occurred on the Colorado River Indian Tribes (CRIT) Reservation. Stevens, Moses, and the victim are all enrolled members of the CRIT Tribe.

The FBI and the CRIT Police Department conducted the investigation in this case. Christina J. Reid-Moore, Assistant U.S. Attorney, District of Arizona, Phoenix, handled the prosecution.
