Moore strenuously denies that he is guilty of any wrongdoing, or that he has perjured himself in any way, and he looks forward to being afforded a day in court to defend himself against these baseless charges." If convicted, Moore would automatically be removed from his seat and face up to 10 years in prison and a $15,000 fine for each of the four counts. Moore was released on a $10,000 bond.[10]
