Moore had admitted theft in the New Norcias court in May, but denied the charge.

Moore was convicted in the state Supreme Court in August of theft and fraud offences.

Moore pleaded guilty in June to the theft and was sentenced at the Magistrate’s Court.
“He has been a very dangerous man for a number of years,” Judge MacLeod added.
“His previous convictions are not conducive to the community and he will not be able to live in that community.”
Moore, who had spent more than a year in prison for burglary and theft in New Norca, has been released on bail until December 2019.
