Wisbech death crash driver Michael Moore jailed for another 15 months for burglary
A DRIVER who was jailed for knocking down and killing a student on a pelican crossing in Wisbech has been sentenced to a further 15 months for burglary.
Michael Moore, of Murrow Lane, Parson Drove, was on bail for causing death by dangerous driving when he raided a supermarket in West Norfolk.
The 40-year-old was sentenced to 15 months after pleading guilty to burglary at Norwich Crown Court.
That sentence will run consecutive to the 43 months jail he was given in April for causing death by dangerous driving.
Moore was doing 58mph in a 30mph zone and had run a red light when he hit Jamie Butcher on Churchill Road, Wisbech, in February last year.
His Chrysler PT Cruiser hit the 22-year-old with such force that his body was found 44 metres from the crossing.
Cambridge Crown Court heard in April that Moore was a “persistent burglar” and had a string of previous convictions. He had committed three previous speeding offences.
