Lennoxville break-in, assault leads to prison
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.
