[Excerpt] ...Former police officer Beverly B. Moore received a DPA in August of 2004 after she was arrested for physical abuse of a child, a felony, in March of 2004.

Moore allegedly struck her son 20 times on March 25, 2004 with a belt and slapped him once on the right side of his face after hearing he “stabbed” a fellow female student with a pencil, according to the criminal complaint.

The victim was taken to Child Protection Center and seen by Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Michael Scahill where the following injuries were noted on the criminal complaint: five red scratches to the right cheek, fresh red bruising on his right hand, five fresh red horizontal marks on the neck and shoulder, a single fresh red bruise on the back of the neck, a single fresh reddish-purple bruise on the inner left thigh, a series of horizontal reddish-purple bruises on the right outer thigh, and two fresh red horizontal bruises on the left side of the head.

Scahill noted the marks were consistent with an intentional inflicted injury and would be consistent with physical abuse, according to the criminal complaint.

Upon conviction of a physical child abuse charge, an offender may face the maximum possible penalty of a fine of not more than $10,000 or imprisonment for not more than three and half years or both.
Moore was issued a DPA that required no further law violations, compliance with all bail conditions, payment of the domestic abuse assessment, and continued cooperation with the Milwaukee County Bureau of Child Welfare.

Moore fulfilled the terms of the agreement, and the case was dismissed in May of 2005. She had no prior record but did have a list of official demerits and reprimands on her Milwaukee Police Department personnel card. Moore remained on the police force until her resignation in early 2006.

Moore’s attorney, Michael Guerin, declined to comment on the specifics of her case but said that what is appropriate or not differs with every person.

Guerin also said that “Wisconsin law is very clear” and employers are not allowed to discriminate against those with criminal convictions unless it directly applies to their occupation.
When asked whether a criminal offense directly applies to an officer’s job, Guerin said that a lot of times “we [the public] think police should be held higher…Sure, that’s true about the execution of their job but is it necessarily true in their daily life?”
