A charge of sex trafficking against a Whitefield man was dismissed after he pleaded guilty to other charges Sept. 12.
Curtis H. Moody, 47, pleaded guilty to class C domestic violence terrorizing, class E criminal attempt, and class E violation of condition of release. The felony charge of domestic violence terrorizing stemmed for an Aug. 18 arrest and prior convictions of domestic violence assault in 2011 and domestic violence terrorizing in 2013.
Moody was sentenced to two years in custody with all but 45 days suspended, plus two years of probation, for the conviction of domestic violence terrorizing. He was also sentenced to 30 days for criminal attempt and 20 days for violation of condition of release. He will serve the sentences concurrently, meaning he will serve a maximum of 45 days unless he violates probation.
Moody has been held at Two Bridges Regional Jail since his arrest Aug. 18 for threatening a woman the night before. Moody fled the scene before law enforcement arrived, but was located Aug. 18 in Augusta and taken into custody, according to court records.
While held at Two Bridges Regional Jail, Moody racked up four additional charges, including charges of violation of condition of release and a class D charge of sex trafficking for allegedly encouraging a woman to prostitute herself in order to raise money for his bail.
He was charged with an additional count of violation of condition of release for making contact with the victim while at Two Bridges Regional Jail in violation of his bail conditions. In a separate case, he was charged with criminal attempt to violate condition of release for encouraging another inmate to make contact with the victim on his behalf.
The charge of sex trafficking, two counts of violation of condition of release, and a charge of criminal mischief stemming from the Aug. 18 incident were dropped due to Moody’s guilty plea to the other charges.
His probation conditions include having no contact with the victim, psychological counseling and treatment, and taking all medications as prescribed.
