MEMPHIS – Mar. 1, 2017 - A Memphis man with six prior felony convictions was sentenced Wednesday to 60 years in prison for the aggravated rape of a woman 16 years ago in Whitehaven, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.
Jacquet Moore, 45, was sentenced by Criminal Court Judge James Lammey in whose court Moore was convicted of aggravated rape in a trial in December. His no-parole sentence will begin in 2020 when a 16-year aggravated robbery sentence Moore is serving expires.
Moore has two more cold-case rape trials pending. A jury last year acquitted him in a fourth rape case.
In December he was convicted of raping a 32-year-old woman in his car on Jan. 23, 2000, after abducting her at gunpoint on Brooks Road near Elvis Presley Boulevard.
Evidence was preserved in a sexual assault kit which was sent to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation lab for testing on July 16, 2012. That led to the identification of Moore in the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) database the following year.
On Feb. 5, 2014, the victim made a tentative identification of Moore as the man who raped her in 2000 and on July 23, 2014, the TBI reported that Moore was a confirmed match.
