CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman County Circuit Court Judge Greg Nicholas on Wednesday, May 10, 2023, sentenced David Lee Moore, of Hanceville, to 75 years in prison. The sentence stems from Moore’s March 1 conviction for failing to register as a sex offender with the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office in violation of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.
“As I stated after the trial our sex offender registration laws are tough for good reason and we will not only prosecute those who break them to the fullest, but we will also ask for tough sentences on anyone who is convicted,” said Cullman County District Attorney Champ Crocker.
Moore was convicted in a one-day trial in March. During the trial, the jury heard from Cullman County Sheriff Matt Gentry and Cullman County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Jason Allen. Moore was previously convicted of first-degree sodomy of a 5-year-old child and multiple other felonies.
“First I would like to thank my assistant district attorneys, trial coordinators and staff who did a great job helping me prosecute this case. I would also like to thank the jury for their diligence. Our sex offender registration laws are tough for good reason and any offender who breaks those laws in Cullman County will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I would like to specifically thank Sheriff Gentry, who testified and his deputies for enforcing our sex offender laws,” Crocker said after the trial.
“I would like to commend my deputies for the hard work they did in this case and the district attorney’s office for the hard work they did in this case. I would particularly thank District Attorney Crocker who took time to personally try this case with his assistant district attorneys. As I stated many times my office will make sure protecting our children is a top priority,” Gentry said after the trial.
