Stalker avoids life in prison
May 31, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Kirk Moore

A three-strikes parolee convicted of stalking a former girlfriend and eventually firing a gun near her Redwood City home escaped a potential life sentence when a judge struck one of his prior convictions and imposed 11 years in prison.

Kirk Vernell Moore, 46, was looking at 25 years to life in prison after pleading no contest to the felony charges of stalking and discharging a firearm. Moore has seven felony convictions and has been to prison six times.

Instead, Judge Joseph Bergeron opted for 11 years and four months in prison with credit of 1,800 days earned while in custody on $65,000 bail.

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. Moore, of East Palo Alto, reportedly 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.
