Neither Corfman nor any of the other women sought out The Post.
On a second visit, she says, he took off her shirt and pants and removed his clothes.He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.Leigh Corfman says she was 14 years old when an older man approached her outside a courtroom in Etowah County.She was sitting on a wooden bench with her mother, they both recall, when the man introduced himself as Roy Moore.Over the ensuing three weeks, two Post reporters contacted and interviewed the four women.
All were initially reluctant to speak publicly but chose to do so after multiple interviews, saying they thought it was important for people to know about their interactions with Moore. "I have prayed over this," Corfman says, explaining why she decided to tell her story now.
The Post confirmed that her mother attended a hearing at the courthouse in February 1979 through divorce records.
Moore's office was down the hall from the courtroom.
Corfman, 53, who works as a customer service representative at a payday loan business, says she has voted for Republicans in the past three presidential elections, including for Donald Trump in 2016.
She says she thought of confronting Moore personally for years, and almost came forward publicly during his first campaign for state Supreme Court in 2000, but decided against it.
Wells says her daughter told her about the encounter more than a decade later, as Moore was becoming more prominent as a local judge.
