Prosecution’s Witnesses Revealed in Rep. Moore Case

By Bill Britt

MONTGOMERY—The prosecution’s witness list for the trial of Rep. Barry Moore has been released.

The prosecution’s witnesses in the Rep. Barry Moore perjury case, are as follows:

Kenneth Boswell, Mayor of Enterprise Mayor
William Aaron Milner, Superintendent Saraland School
Sue Nuwien, Chair Coffee County Republican Party
Dr. Nancy Chandler, President Enterprise State Community College
Joshua Pipkin, Barry Moore’s former opponent
Dr. Craig Pouncey, former Assistant State Superintendent at Alabama Department of Education
Gwendolyn Timbie, Grand Jury Court Reporter
Donald Keith Barker, a member of the Attorney General’s White Collar Crimes Unit.

Moore was indicted on two counts of perjury and two counts of making 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.
