UPDATE - Hearing Date Set for State Rep. Barry Moore

By  | 


A hearing has been set for Rep. Moore later this month. It will be May 20 at 2:30 p.m. in the Lee County Justice Center. Moore wants to make his case in court before the June 3rd primary. He faces Joshua Pipkin.


OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) -- A special Lee County grand jury that has been investigating possible government corruption will meet again next week.

The state attorney general's office filed court papers saying the grand jury will be in session May 13-16.

The court papers were filed in the case of Republican state Rep. Barry Moore of Enterprise. He turned himself in April 24 in Opelika after the special grand jury indicted him on charges of perjury and giving false statements to law enforcement.

He is the second legislator to face charges resulting from the investigation. Earlier in the month, Republican state Rep. Greg Wren of Montgomery pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor ethics charge and agreed to cooperate with state investigators.
