Norfolk Man Sentenced to Prison for Prostituting a Child

NORFOLK, Va. – Alvin Norlee Moore III, 29, of Norfolk, was sentenced today to 188 months in prison for sex trafficking of a child.  He was also sentenced to 15 years of supervised release.

Moore pleaded guilty on January 6, 2016.  According to court documents and evidence presented at sentencing, “Jane Doe,” a 15 year-old runaway, was found by her family after fleeing from Moore after several weeks of being forced to prostitute for him in the Tidewater area. The family then contacted the Virginia Beach Police Department.  Moore had been a violent abuser of several young women since 2010.  He was originally arrested by Virginia Beach, but was transferred to federal custody on a criminal complaint.

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; and John S. Adams, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Norfolk Field Office, made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge Mark S. Davis. Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth M. Yusi prosecuted the case.

The case was investigated by the FBI’s Norfolk Field Office and the Virginia Beach Police Department.
