According Roy Moore's lawyer, the signature on Beverly Nelson's yearbook does not match Judge Moore's handwriting.
On Monday, with infamous celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred next to her, Nelson claimed Moore attempted to rape her in a car when she was 16 years old.
Two years after the attempted rape, Moore allegedly signed her yearbook in 1977.
“To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas. Christmas 1977. Love, Roy Moore, D.A. 12-22-77 Olde Hickory House," Moore signed.
Below are Moore's signatures side by side. The one on the left is from a Nelson's yearbook and the one on the right is from a book Moore signed.
Examining the signatures closely, there are obvious differences between the two signatures.
1) The "y" at the end of Roy does not match.
2) The capital "M," along with the following "o" in "Moore" does not match.
There are two versions of the yearbook with Moore's signatures. The version presented by Allred on Monday was a copy and was in black and white. Below is the actual signed yearbook.
Even to a non-expert on signature forgeries, the different ink allegedly used in Roy Moore's signature makes Nelson's claim suspect.
In addtion to the signature discrepancies , Nelson's stepson Darrell Nelson claims she is lying.
In the video, Darrell stated he has been following Judge Moore for a long time and believes he a good man.
