Milwaukee Man Sentenced to 16 years in Prison for Armed Carjacking Near Wick Field

United States Attorney Gregory J. Haanstad has announced that yesterday, Broderick A. Moore (age 25) was sentenced to 16 years in prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, for his involvement in an armed carjacking.  In July 2017, a federal jury found Mr. Moore guilty of carjacking and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.    


The evidence presented at trial showed that on July 16, 2015, at about 10:20 a.m., Mr. Moore carjacked a 73 year-old woman, across the street from Wick Field, in Milwaukee. The evidence established that Mr. Moore pointed a loaded gun at the victim’s head, threatened to shoot her, and demanded the keys to her Toyota Avalon.  Mr. Moore’s co-defendant, Robert Ellis, orchestrated the sale of the car immediately after the carjacking.  Robert Ellis and co-defendant Sean Harvey then drove to the victim’s home and stole her Honda Accord. 


Mr. Moore’s co-defendants, Robert A. Ellis and Sean Harvey pled guilty to aiding and abetting Mr. Moore in the carjacking.  Mr. Ellis was sentenced to 11 years and 8 months in prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release.  Mr. Harvey was sentenced to 4 years in prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release.   


This case was investigated by the FBI’s Milwaukee Area Violent Crimes Task Force and the Milwaukee Police Department. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Margaret B. Honrath and Laura S. Kwaterski.
