"CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT" MAY GET HER UP TO 10 YEARS IN PRISON
The United State Department of Justice announced earlier today that a Mississippi Corrections officer has pleaded guilty to use of “excessive force against an inmate, involving … a dangerous weapon and resulting in bodily injury.”
Apparently, on July 11, 2019, N. Moore is said to have kicked a “non-resisting inmate in the head” in violation of the latter's constitutional right to not be subjected to “cruel and unusual punishment.”
In a written statement issued by the DOJ, Special Agent in Charge Jermicha Fomby for the FBI Jackson Field Office noted, “Our citizens serving time for crimes against the public deserve the safety and protection from harm by those officials who are charged with their care …. Ms. Moore's blatant violation of this trust is a disservice to those in the penal system, the corrections officers who take pride in their profession and citizens in general. The FBI is committed to protecting all citizens of our community.”
Scheduled for sentencing on July 25, 2023, Moore faces up to ten years in prison.
Ironically, that former Corrections officer must be kicking herself ….
