Memphis BLM leader sentenced to six years in prison over illegal voting

Memphis Black Lives Matter leaders Pamela Moses was sentenced to six years in prison after she was found guilty of illegally voting six times after felony charges.

“You tricked the probation department into giving you documents saying you were off probation,” Judge Mark Ward said in court during Moses’ sentencing.

“After you were convicted of a felony in 2015, you voted six times as a convicted felon,” he added.

Moses argued she had never previously voted and unknowingly registered.

“I did not falsify anything. All I did was try to get my rights to vote back the way the people at the election commission told me and the way the clerk did,” Moses said.

The sentencing marks another concern for the BLM movement that has faced multiple legal issues in recent months after quick growth in its initial years.
