This morning in the 33rd Circuit Court, Judge Roy C. Hayes III sentenced Leslie Charles Moore, 52, of Prudenville, to three to five years in prison with credit for 273 days served for violating probation arising out of his conviction of Operating While Intoxicated, Third Offense, in 1997.
Moore has been arrested 52 times in his life, including 32 times since being placed on probation in Charlevoix County. He has been convicted of drunk driving offenses on six separate occasions despite the fact that he lost his drivers license in 1979.
While on probation in this matter, Moore absconded and committed offenses in California, Nevada, Tennessee, Florida, Virginia and again in Michigan. On multiple occasions he fled the jurisdictions to avoid prosecution after arrest.
Charlevoix County Prosecuting Attorney Allen Telgenhof recommended the prison sentence, stating that Moore’s record is clear that “he will continue to drink, he will continue to drive and he will continue to run when he is caught” and that the only way the public can be safe from Moore’s drinking and driving is if he is imprisoned.
Daniel J. Guy, 51, of Boyne Falls, was sentenced to 30 days in jail with credit for one day served. Guy was convicted following a jury trial on October 27, 2015 of manufacturing marijuana.
Evidence at trial indicated that although Guy possessed a medical marijuana caregiver card, he violated the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act by having far in excess of the number of allowable plants, by not keeping the plants in a locked, secure facility and by allowing others access to the plants.
