Man Sentenced to 43 Years For Rape During a Burglary

On January 8, 2012, a Stevenson Ranch home was burglarized by a man named Jerry Moon. The home was occupied by a woman during the burglary and being at the right place, which is one’s home, at the wrong time, resulted in the rape of this woman.

Moon, who is 19 years old currently, was arrested and charged with burglary and rape.

In December of 2012, moon actually admitted and pled guilty to forcible rape charge, plus one count each of sexual penetration by a foreign object by means of force and forcible oral copulation. He also admitted that he had tied up and bound the woman so that she had no means of escape.

Moon’s sex crime defense attorney submitted a motion to try and withdraw Moon’s guilty plea, but San Fernando Court Superior Court Judge Steve Nash rejected the motion after hearing the arguments.

Moon has been in jail with no bail since February 2012 and on March 25, 2013 the 19 year old was sentenced to 43 years to life in state prison for the raping of a woman inside her home during the commission of a burglary.
