United States Attorney Richard W. Moore of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Lamarcus Moore, 32, of Mobile, was sentenced to 21 months in prison for emailing threats to kidnap and kill a woman in Mobile. United States District Judge Kristi K. DuBose imposed the sentence.
Moore pled guilty to the charge in September. Court documents filed in connection with his plea indicate that Moore sent at least nine separate emails over a period of a month to the victim. The emails contained explicit threats to kill the woman. At the time, Moore was in federal prison in Yazoo City, Mississippi, serving a sentence on an unrelated charge. Following his release from prison, Judge DuBose ordered that Moore be supervised by the United States Probation Office for three years.
The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Sean P. Costello.
