AG Files Felony Complaint for N.H. Judge Who Submitted Fake Online Evaluations

Dan Tuohy / NHPR

New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon MacDonald says a felony complaint was filed Friday charging former Judge Paul S. Moore with one count of fraud in an attempt to allegedly "defraud the New Hampshire judicial retirement plan."

Moore, who resigned two weeks ago, is scheduled to enter a guilty plea and be sentenced on the charge on May 2 in Merrimack County Superior Court.

In a letter earlier this year to the Judicial Conduct Committee, Moore wrote that he submitted evaluations of himself online, as though a different person submitted them. He said he had "inflated concerns" and anxiety about the process.
