United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Moorehead, Minnesota, man convicted of Criminal Contempt pled guilty and was sentenced on June 26, 2018, by U.S. Magistrate Judge William D. Gerdes.
Jack Moore, age 30, was sentenced to time served equal to 2 days in custody and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $10.
Moore was indicted by a federal grand jury on January 17, 2018. The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred in December 2017, wherein Moore, who had been subpoenaed to testify as a witness in a federal criminal trial, failed to appear at the U.S. Courthouse in Aberdeen, South Dakota.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson prosecuted the case.
