Brockton: Driver in fatal car chase pleads not guilty to 21 charges

Tuesday inside Brockton Superior Court, Antwoin Moore pled not guilty to 21 charges that stem from an October car chase with police.

The 28-yr-old Brockton man will continue to be held on a cash bail of $250,000. A district court judge set the bail amount after Moore’s arrest but Moore was recently indicted by a grand jury. The case is now in superior court and Judge Raymond Veary upheld the bail amount at Moore’s arraignment.

He’s being housed at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility but if he does make bail, he will be under supervised probation and unable to drive a vehicle.

In court, the prosecutor explained that Brockton Detectives were investigating the sale and distribution of cocaine on October 12th. Moore thought he was going to be selling cocaine on the east side of Brockton to someone he knew, however he was greeted by three undercover police vehicles. A car chase ensued after Moore fled the scene. The prosecutor said Moore was driving 59 mph during rush hour traffic when he ran a red light and struck two vehicles—the operator of one of the vehicles, Maryanne Kotsiopoulos, didn’t survive the crash.

Moore is facing a slew of charges including second degree murder and manslaughter.

He is due back in court January 24th.
