Court documents say Moore is 37 years old and lives in Church Hill, Maryland. The court documents, filed on Nov. 9, 2015, allege that Lee had a profile on a the social media application “Meet24” that described him as a 30-year-old male from Sarkey Corner, Maryland.
According to documents, he reached out to undercover Delaware State Police Detectives posing as underage girls.
