Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson announces that today in the Division Two courtroom a jury convicted Lawrence resident Ritchie L. Moore, 49, of reckless aggravated battery.
The criminal case stems from Mr. Moore’s January 3 attack on a fellow inmate at the Douglas County Jail. The victim exited his cell and was unaware that Mr. Moore was waiting just outside his door. Mr. Moore repeatedly punched the victim in face. The attack left the victim with two broken facial bones.
