The Darris Moody Case: The Final Resolution


Darris Moody

We followed the strange tale of the Waynesville woman, Darris Moody, whose imagination got ignited by an anti-government website, the People's Bureau of Investigation, which induced Moody to begin sending legal-looking but bogus arrest warrants and threatening letters to a host of North Carolina officials. including judges. She was arrested in September of 2022.

That case has been resolved in federal court. Darris Moody will serve two years in prison, but the man who put her up to it, one Timothy Dever who lives in Illinois, was sentenced to 10 years.

U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina Dena J. King, who prosecuted the cases, said, “Dever’s anti-government rhetoric and fake arrest writs were more than a nuisance. They put hundreds of lives at risk. Those who shared Dever’s warped ideology, including Moody, became self-proclaimed bounty hunters that turned innocent victims into targets of harassment, intimidation, and death threats. But, unlike Dever and Moody’s sham court proceedings, my office has legitimate authority to hold these defendants accountable for their actions.”
