OPELIKA—On Wednesday, Lee County Circuit Judge Jacob Walker set a trial date of September 15 at 8:30 a.m. for indicted lawmaker Rep. Barry Moore, R-Enterprise.

Moore was indicted on two counts of perjury and two counts of false statements to the Lee County Grand Jury. The charges came from answers given regarding conversations between Moore and then-candidate for HD91 Josh Pipkin. The conversations were in relation to Speaker Mike Hubbard’s threats to withhold 100 jobs from Enterprise if Pipkin did not exit the race. In these statements, Moore allegedly said that Hubbard said that he would “rain holy hell” down on Pipkin if he did not withdraw.

Moore’s attorney, Bill Baxley, filed a motion to dismiss the case that was heard in Judge Walker’s court on April 24. It was taken under advisement but has yet to receive a ruling.

The case was originally scheduled for June 3. A motion of continuance was filed on May 28 and granted on May 30 moving the date for the jury trial until September.
