Clovis, NM - Ninth Judicial District Attorney, Andrea Reeb, announced that Robert Moya, age 30, of Clovis, was found guilty by a Curry County jury of Breaking and Entering, a fourth degree felony. The case was originally tried on February 12, 2018, and resulted in a mistrial due to a hung jury.
In June 2017, Mr. Moya forced in the front door of a recently vacated mobile home in Clovis. A neighbor heard the noise and saw Mr. Moya enter and called the police. Multiple officers with the Clovis Police Department responded and arrested Mr. Moya after he exited the home through the back door.
The Honorable Matthew Chandler presided over the one-day trial and ordered that sentencing be scheduled at a later date. The State filed paperwork showing that Mr. Moya is a habitual offender, which could enhance his sentence by four years in addition to eighteen months for a fourth degree felony.
This case was prosecuted by Nicholas Rossi, Assistant District Attorney. Mr. Moya was represented by Donald Pieper, Criminal Defense Attorney.
