Black Lives Matter (BLM) founder Pamela Moses was sentenced to six years in prison for voting illegally while serving probation, according to TN’s Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich.
The prosecutor detailed that Moses, 44, has 16 prior criminal convictions and, in addition, committed the crime of voting while on probation. The prosecutor’s office explained that Criminal Court Judge W. Mark Ward said that if she completes prison programs and maintains good behavior, he would consider paroling her after nine months.

On April 29, 2015, she pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence and forgery, both felonies. She is also guilty of misdemeanor counts of perjury, stalking, theft under $500 and escape. She was placed on probation for seven years, the prosecutor detailed.
Finally, she indicated that during the case, it was shown that on Sept. 3, 2019, Moses filed a certificate of restoration and an application for voter registration with the Shelby County Election Commission.
“She filed a certificate of restoration, falsely claiming that his sentence had expired and that she was eligible to register to vote. However, Moses was still serving his 2015 sentence on probation when she filed the restoration documents,” the prosecutor’s office said.
