Who is Disparaging Leigh Corfman?

Judge Roy Moore Legal Defense Fund
March 13, 2019

MONTGOMERY, Ala., March 13, 2019 /Standard Newswire/ -- Attorneys for Leigh Corfman and certain media accounts claim that Judge Moore is attacking Corfman's character. In reality, Judge Moore is simply relating testimony taken under oath of Corfman's former attorney and lifelong friend Eddie Sexton, and of Sexton's client, Gary Lantrip.

According to Lantrip:

    When Eddie [Sexton] said he was going to drop her, he said she's (F'd expletive) everybody in Gadsden, including himself, and that her dad was a doctor and they used to throw sex parties when she was young so she was put in with that as a young girl, and he's known her her whole life. (Lantrip deposition, p. 110)

When Sexton was asked under oath if he had, in fact, made the above statement, he answered:

    "I don't know if that is exactly what I said. I probably did. I mean, I probably did tell him that I had sex with her." (Sexton deposition, p. 113)

When asked about sex parties being thrown when Corfman was young, Sexton stated:

    "I don't know -- I don't know about young. I said that I had heard that, too. I mean, I probably did tell him that." (Sexton deposition, p. 118)

Sexton was subsequently asked, who he had heard that from, and he replied;

    "I don't know. Probably people at the Country Club, kinda sorta.  Like it would have been kids.  I don't know nothing.  I doubt that it would have been somebody that would have claimed to be there."  (Sexton deposition p 119)

Finally, when asked if he thought any of his comments, as related by Lantrip, were "disparaging" of Leigh Corfman, Sexton replied:

    "I think they could be, yeah." (Sexton Deposition, pp. 119-20)

The person disparaging Leigh Corfman is her former attorney who has "known her her whole life!" Judge Moore has simply been defending himself against Corfman's false and malicious allegations. The truth should be told!
