Len­noxville break-in, as­sault leads to prison

Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL NEWS - Record Staff

Arob­bery in the Len­noxville bor­ough in which Eric Moore was has sent him to pro­vin­cial prison two years less a day.

Moore suc­cess­fully went through ther­apy to over­come his drug prob­lems last winter and then re­laps­ing over the sum­mer, Moore was sen­tenced by Jus­tice Claire Des­gens of the Court of Que­bec on Tues­day in Sher­brooke.

The sen­tence comes af­ter a joint rec­om­men­da­tion sug­ges­tion by the de­fense and the Crown.

Moore pleaded guilty in April to a house rob­bery on Col­lege Street in July 2017. He ad­mit­ted to charges of break­ing and en­ter­ing with in­tent to com­mit ag­gra­vated as­sault and wear­ing a dis­guise.

The vic­tim suf­fered a bro­ken nose and needed about 20 stitches to his face.

The in­ci­dents against Moore and Justin Lyons oc­curred on July 23, 2017 on Col­lege St. in Len­noxville.

Moore ad­mit­ted to break­ing into the Col­lege Street apart­ment wear­ing a mask and at­tacked its res­i­dent with sev­eral to the face.

In his state­ment to in­ves­ti­ga­tors from the Sher­brooke Po­lice, Moore claimed he did not hit the vic­tim., who did not know Lyons or Moore apart from the fact that he is the for­mer lover of the same teenager., who was not in­volved in this case. Hav­ing en­tered a ther­apy house fol­low­ing his in­dict­ment, Moore suc­cess­fully com­pleted his pro­gram to treat his cannabis use but prob­lems dur­ing the sum­mer lead him to fall back into drugs. He had been de­tained since that time.

Justin Lyons, the co-ac­cused in this case, has not yet ap­peared in court.
