Ex-Convict Who Attacked Eu Sentenced to 25 Years

September 10, 1987|ERIC MALNIC | Times Staff Writer

Saying there is "nothing to recommend him for any leniency at all," a judge this morning sentenced Gregory Lee Moore to 25 years in state prison for a series of residential break-ins that included the beating and robbery of California Secretary of State March Fong Eu.

Reading through the ex-convict's lengthy record of burglaries, robberies and assaults dating back to 1972, when Moore was 13, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dion G. Morrow said the files reveal "a total life picture and profile of criminality. . . .

"Based on that litany of unhappiness, it is my intention to sentence him to a maximum term," Morrow said. "He is a danger to the community."

Moore, 28, will receive credit for the 324 days in custody since his arrest and 162 days of "good time."

A jury last month found Moore guilty of 10 felonies stemming from six burglaries and robberies in Hancock Park and Beverly Hills dating back to last Oct. 20.

Eu, who suffered three broken ribs and cuts about the face and head in the Nov. 10 attack at her Hancock Park home, did not appear in court this morning, but she submitted a letter to the judge in which she urged that Moore be imprisoned for "the longest term possible. . . . Society must take steps to protect itself from the likes of this defendant," she wrote. "Any release is too soon. No sentence is too long."
