Minister of music found not guilty of using taser in church brawl

| March 25, 2012

MOBILE, Alabama — Simone Moore, the former minister of music who allegedly tased the church pastor during a brawl, was found not guilty of an assault charge in a Mobile County courtroom this week, he and his lawyer said Thursday.

Moore had been accused of third-degree assault, reportedly injuring the Rev. Darryl Riley during a fight at the New Welcome Baptist Church in the St. Elmo community.

Mobile County District Judge Charles McKnight heard the case for more than two hours Wednesday afternoon before he ruled.

"The judge saw right through it and he found me not guilty," Moore said. "The bottom line was to destroy me."

"I think the ruling was fair and honest," said Robert "Cowboy Bob" Clark, who represented Moore. "I don’t think a jury would have done any differently."
