man convicted in chinese food deliveryman attack

This week in New York, 23-year-old David Moore, who lured a Chinese food deliveryman to a housing development and then viciously stabbed him, was convicted of attempted murder: Conviction in vicious attack on Queens Chinese food deliveryman. The attack happened back in October 2006. Moore stabbed 39-year-old Jian Lin Huang, but ran away when he was alarmed by Huang's loud screams. He was later arrested after TV stations aired security video from the crime scene.

Moore was convicted late Tuesday of second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault and fourth-degree weapon possession. He'll be sentenced on April 23, and faces up to 25 years in prison. I hope he gets all of it. It would be nice to think harsh sentences would be a deterrant to future vicious attacks on Chinese food deliverymen... but I know that's not going to happen. The reality is, this will happen again.
