Moon lived mostly in New York State, but for 13 months was an inmate doing kitchen duty at a federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut. Moon was convicted in the early 1980s of filing false income tax returns for three years in the ‘80s, failing to report more than $150,000 in income he deposited in New York accounts. Moon contended that the funds were being held for members of his church. He lost an appeal to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in which he was represented by constitutional law scholar Laurence Tribe.
