CROSSVILLE — A Crossville man who was accused of the November 2009 burglary of a residence inside the city limits during which guns were taken entered a guilty plea to a two-count indictment and then was granted judicial diversion in the case.

Cameron Christopher Moffett, 19, whose last known address was on Ponderosa Dr., entered his guilty pleas March 7 to one count of aggravated burglary and one count of theft more than $1,000.

He received a three-year sentence for burglary and two-year sentence for theft, to be run concurrently with each other. He was then granted probationary conditions of judicial diversion which allows him to avoid serving the prison sentence.

If Moffett is successful in completion of the diversion, he will later be eligible to submit a motion to the court to have his record cleared of the charges.

Crossville Police charged Moffett with breaking into an Evergreen Dr. residence during which six guns were stolen. At the time of his arrest, Moffett gave investigators a statement concerning the burglary.
