In 1991, Tina Johnson was 28-years-old and going through a divorce when she went to Roy Moore's legal office with her mother to assign legal custody of her children to her. While at the meeting, Moore remarked how pretty she was and asked if her young daughters were as pretty as her. Upon leaving the office, Moore 'grabbed' Johnson's buttocks without her permission.
According to Johnson, he asked questions about her young daughters, including what color eyes they had and if they were as pretty as she was. She said that made her feel uncomfortable, too. Once the papers were signed, she and her mother got up to leave. After her mother walked through the door first, she said, Moore came up behind her. It was at that point, she recalled, he grabbed her buttocks. "He didn't pinch it; he grabbed it," said Johnson. She was so surprised she didn't say anything. She didn't tell her mother.
The details of Johnson's accusation against Moore match public records.
AL.com located the court documents from 1991, detailing the custody transfer. Cofield's petition for custody is signed by Roy S. Moore, attorney. It lists his address as 924 Third Avenue, Gadsden. "This is not a politics thing with me," she said. "It's more of a moral and religious thing." It has bothered her over the years to see Moore on TV, talking about his Christian faith.
