A Toledo man who fought with and injured a Toledo police officer was sentenced Tuesday to five years in prison.
Raymont Moore, 28, of the 800 block of Woodland Avenue pleaded guilty Dec. 13 in Lucas County Common Pleas Court to attempted felonious assault for the Aug. 22 incident in which Officer Thomas Killen was injured. Judge Myron Duhart cited Moore’s lengthy criminal record, lack of remorse, and the seriousness of the crime in imposing the prison term.
Moore was in a parked car with another individual in the 2400 block of West Central Avenue when police approached them and he fled. Police chased after him, grabbed him, and he swung an elbow at Officer Killen, causing a torn muscle in the officer’s chest.
