FL Pastor Sentenced To 60 Years On Child Sex Charges

From the Justice Department:

Jason R. Moore, 43, of Milton, Florida, was sentenced to sixty years in federal prison after previously pleading guilty to two counts of “Illicit Sexual Conduct in Foreign Places.”

The sentence was announced by Jason R. Coody, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Florida.

Moore engaged in “Illicit Sexual Conduct in Foreign Places” from March 2013 through February 2016. Specifically, Moore engaged in these crimes in the Republic of Fiji.

Moore was arrested by Special Agents from the Department of Homeland Security and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in Santa Rosa County in late 2022 after victims of Moore’s crimes came forward regarding their sexual abuse.

Moore’s prison sentence will be followed by a Lifetime of supervised release. He will also be required to register as a sex offender and be subject to all sex offender conditions.

From my December 2022 report:

Moore, 42, a preacher from Milton, Florida, was arrested on Friday in Santa Rosa County for illicit sexual conduct that allegedly took place from March 2013 through February 2016 in the Republic of Fiji.

Moore is also facing state charges after being accused of molesting a child under the age of 12 in Pensacola in 2006. According to FDLE, Moore led missionary trips in Florida, throughout the United States, Canada and Fiji.
