Harold “House” Moore Found Guilty Of Molestation
An actor on VH1’s now defunct series “Single Ladies” has been found guilty on molestation charges.
A few days ago, Harold “House” Moore was getting praise from friends on Twitter about his appearance on “Hawaii Five-O.”
Now he’s going to prison for child molestation.
The actor, who’s also been on “Single Ladies,” “CSI” and Tyler Perry’s “House of Payne,” was convicted Friday of violating a 15-year-old girl in Gwinnett County.
Moore, who had reportedly been playing Dr. Dre in a forthcoming Tupac Shakur biopic, is facing five to 20 years in prison.
The jury returned its verdict after more than nine hours of deliberation, finding him guilty of sneaking into the girl’s bedroom and touching her early in the morning on Nov. 25, 2012, according to a news release from the Gwinnett district attorney’s office.
Moore testified during the trial, which was prosecuted by Nigel Lush, and maintained his innocence, but the defendant couldn’t explain why the girl would falsely accuse him, said Dan Mayfield, chief assistant DA.
The victim, whose connection to the defendant wasn’t released, made an outcry to a friend immediately after the crime.
Gwinnett police Cpl. Ben Ervin of the special victim’s unit interviewed the victim and Moore.
“The victim stated the defendant had touched her on previous occasions that made her uncomfortable by tickling her on parts of her body and adjusting her bra strap,” Mayfield said.
Moore had been out on bond since his arrest in 2012 and living in Los Angeles but was immediately arrested after the verdict.Before acting, he worked as a behavioral therapist. He still calls himself “an advocate for youth development and education,” the profile says.
