Pamela Moses Illegal Voting Trial Dropped by DA

David Royer, WREG, April 22, 2022

Activist Pamela Moses will not face a second trial over illegal voting registration accusations, the Shelby County District Attorney announced Friday.

Moses was sentenced to six years by a judge in January, after she was found guilty of making or consenting to false information on an election document.

But that same judge later granted her a new trial, saying information about a previous conviction should not have been considered by the jury, and that a document from probation officials was not disclosed at trial. A trial had been set to start April 25.

Friday, District Attorney Amy Weirich said her office was dismissing the illegal registration case and the violation of probation against Moses “in the interest of judicial economy.”


Moses admitted registering to vote when she was permanently barred due to a felony conviction, but maintained that probation officials told her she was eligible to be reinstated. {snip}
