MARION COUNTY — A Marion County jury has found a 45-year-old Centralia man guilty of three out of four felony domestic battery charges, after two days of testimony.
Jarid D. Moore was found guilty of Class 4 felony unlawful restraint, Class 2 felony aggravated domestic battery applying pressure on the neck, and Class 4 domestic battery.
They did not, however, find him guilty of the second Class 2 felony charge of aggravated domestic battery covering mouth and nose with a pillow.
Judge Mark Stedelin ordered a pre-sentencing investigation and revoked Moore’s bond, before scheduling a March 17 sentencing date. A Class 2 felony is punishable by up to 7-years in prison and a Class 4 is punishable by up to 3-years in prison.
According to court records, Moore’s victim fled from the home in September wearing only a towel and ran to a neighbor’s house, where she said Moore had been choking her and wouldn’t allow her to leave.
Moore has an extensive history of criminal charges including domestic battery, unlawful restraint and a 1995 kidnapping conviction for which he was sentenced to 5 years in prison.
Earlier last year he was convicted of one count Class 2 felony aggravated domestic battery including strangling against the same woman, with a second charge being dismissed per the plea agreement.
