A California man who impersonated a police officer and threatened women touching them inappropriately was charged of multiple counts of assault with intent to commit a sexual assault, criminal threats, grand theft, second-degree burglary and two counts of false imprisonment by violence and was sentenced to 115 years behind bars this week.
He was also convicted of four misdemeanors, including three counts of unlawful use of a badge and one count of sexual battery. Christoph Moore, 41, Anaheim man, stopped women in the Hollywood area in November 2015 while pretending to be a police officer.
Record from surveillance camera
He flashed a badge and pulled out a handgun. He was captured on a surveillance camera fondling a woman on November 24, 2015 when he fondled her breasts. In October of that year, Moore locked himself inside a store with the store's owner and after claiming to be a detective investigating counterfeit money forced her to take off her clothes before her ex-husband arrived and he fled. Moore was arrested in December 2015. Deputy District Attorney Lowrie Mendoza, with the Sex Crimes Division, prosecuted the case. A such sentenced term for imprisonment is not uncommon. A teenage boy from Brooklyn, Asa Robert, who was found guilty of raping and sodomizing an 82-year-old widow, in 2015, has been sentenced to 115 years in prison. A 23-year-old Connecticut man has been sentenced to 115 years for raping and fatally beating a Manchester woman before setting her body on fire in a January 2014 attack. As many others, Michael Anthony Johnson, a Prince George's County man, 33 old, has been sentenced to 115 years in prison for threatening to rape and kill his ex-wife and her daughters.
