Stalker facing life in prison
January 20, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Kirk Vernell Moore

A parolee who pleaded no contest to stalking a former girlfriend and eventually firing a gun near her Redwood City home is facing life in prison as a three-striker.

Kirk Vernell Moore, 45, faces 25 years to life after pleading no contest to the felony charges of stalking and discharging a firearm. Prosecutors are seeking the maximum but Judge Joseph Bergeron said he will consider giving Moore a determinate second-strike term at his April 4 sentencing. Moore has seven felony convictions and has been to prison six times.

Moore took the plea deal just as jury trial was to begin in the incidents which spanned between Nov. 14, 2011, and Dec. 12, 2011. Prosecutors say Moore, of East Palo Alto, dated his victim for a few months before she ended the relationship but he continued calling, sometimes as often as 40 times a day. In one message, he reportedly threatened to kill her and her family and one December night was spotted pacing back and forth in front of the home with a silver handgun.

The next day he allegedly had flowers delivered with a note asking to see her, which she ignored, and later that day appeared at the home. The woman’s brother and girlfriend, who were sitting outside the residence, spotted him and the brother warned him to “grow up” and leave. Moore fired a shot in the air from the silver handgun and responding police found him hiding nearby. A loaded gun registered to his mother was found in the open bed of a truck near him.

He remains in custody on $650,000 bail.
