Just the same, regardless of what the state of Hawaii used to think or the legal definition is, you’ll never convince me that a 14 yr old girl is adult enough to make sexual decisions.
This account is based on interviews with more than 30 people who said they knew Moore between 1977 and 1982, when he served as an assistant district attorney for Etowah County in northern Alabama, where he grew up.
She says that Moore would pick her up for dates at the mall or at college basketball games, where she was a cheerleader. She remembers changing out of her uniform before they went out for dinners at a pizzeria called Mater’s, where she says Moore would order bottles of Mateus Rosé, or at a Chinese restaurant, where she says he would order her tropical cocktails at a time when she believes she was younger than 19, the legal drinking age.
On May 2, 1972, Etowah County voters approved legalized alcohol sales in the county. The margin was miniscule, 690 votes out of more than 29,000 cast, but both opponents and supporters of the measure had their say, and the “wet” side won.

And turning to Gloria Allred for representation? I cannot possibly be expected to take Gloria Allred seriously and that is a real shame if Beverly Nelson is telling the truth. She chose very poor legal representation/PR if she wanted her claims to be taken seriously.
That's the real lesson here. If any accuser wants to be taken seriously...find a good, ethical, noncontroversial lawyer, take the appropriate legal path to get justice, and trust that the media will find the story. You will appear more credible than if you let Gloria Allred represent.
