Ta” Moore was sentenced to six years in prison for gun possession, after
being named a suspect in the shooting of an NYPD officer in Harlem in 2003.
Moore, who was later cleared of the shooting, claims that the government is
targeting him due to his association with McGriff and Irv “Gotti”
Lorenzo. McGriff is accused of the 2001 murder of rapper Eric “E-Money
Bags” Smith, while Lorenzo and his brother Christopher are accused of
laundering millions of dollars in drug proceeds for McGriff. "When I was
interrogated about the officer being shot, it took one hour or two," Moore
told the Judge. "The other interrogation took more than a day." Moore
also has a child with Sandra “Pepa” Denton of Salt-N-Pepa fame.
