Alabama Rep. Moore turns to appeals court

OPELIKA —

OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama legislator indicted in a government corruption investigation is asking a Lee County judge to put his case on hold while he appeals to a higher court.

Republican Rep. Barry Moore of Enterprise has requested that Circuit Judge Jacob Walker III stay the proceedings while Moore seeks a review of his case by the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals.

Moore is turning to the appeals court because Walker rejected Moore's challenge to the indictment against him and the attorney general's appointment of retired St. Clair County District Attorney Van Davis to handle the grand jury that returned the indictment.

Moore was arrested in April on charges of perjury and giving false statements to law enforcement. He has pleaded not guilty. He won his primary election in June.
