HART — A 42-year-old Rothbury man who caused a crash fueled by a love triangle last March was ordered to serve 60 days in jail of a six-month discretionary sentence in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Aug. 3.

Robert Bernard Moore pleaded “no contest” to one count of felonious assault last June, stemming from the crash in Grant Township.

Moore backed his vehicle into a car transporting a man with whom he was fighting over the same woman. Police were able to track down Moore after the crash, because he left his license plate at the scene, police said.

“My client has had and eight-year spell of bad health that has led to bad judgement as in this situation,” said Moore’s attorney, James Dimitriou II.

Sentencing guidelines for the conviction are 0-6 months.

Moore was also ordered to serve 18 months probation and pay fines and costs of $500. He is allowed to report to jail, Aug. 16, and work release is authorized. Moore received credit for two days served in jail.
