The lawyer for embattled Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore raised questions about claims of a woman who’s alleged Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 16 — including her assertion she had no further contact with Moore afterwards.

In a news conference, Moore lawyer Philip Jauregui noted that accuser Beverly Young Nelson claimed she had never seen Moore after he allegedly locked her in a car and inappropriately touched her.

But Jauregui said it was Moore, who as a circuit court judge in 1999, who signed Nelson’s divorce case.

The lawyer also demanded Nelson and her lawyer, Gloria Allred, hand over Nelson’s high school yearbook that they claim was signed by Moore for a handwriting analysis.

“We're still working through some things, but there are some things you need to know and we want to make you aware of,” Jauregui said.

“We… had a handwriting expert look at the evidence submitted” at the Nelson news conference — specifically, a high school yearbook, he said. “Judge Moore not only has denied everything [Nelson]said before, but now flatly denies that and he says it's not true. We have a handwriting expert… that is looking at those. …Right now our attorney is sending a letter to Gloria Allred demanding that the year book be released” to “a neutral custodian.”

He questioned Moore’s signature in the yearbook.

“Judge Moore can't ever remember signing his name with D.A. after it, but he had seen it before,” the lawyer said. “You know where he had seen it? When he was on the bench, his assistant, whose initials are D.A., Deborah Adams, would stamp his signature on documents and put capital D.A. That's exactly how the signature appears on the divorce decree that Judge Moore signed” for Nelson years later.

“Release the year book so that we can determine is it genuine or is it a fraud,” he demanded.
