According to State Auditor Jim Zeigler, who sent a release to media, Moore’s arrest is a “duplicate charge.”

“This is a duplicate charge. The incident of wandering onto a neighbor’s land while hunting happened almost a year ago. I am surprised and disappointed that this duplicate charge was allowed,” he said. “In football, this would be called ‘piling on.’ A misdemeanor arrest had already been made last year on this exact minor incident.”

Tuesday afternoon, Roy Moore’s campaign released a statement from Chairman Bill Armistead:

“This is a personal matter involving an alleged hunting violation by Judge Moore’s son Caleb over eleven months ago which has nothing to do with the campaign. This is a cheap political trick to detract from the real issues facing our Country.”
