Trial set for lawyer accused in Chardon court bomb threats

CLEVELAND (AP) – A trial date has been set for a lawyer accused of calling in bomb threats to courthouses in three northeast Ohio county courthouses in 2012.

The (Willoughby) News-Herald reports that trial is scheduled for March 17 for 42-year-old Gregory Moore of Sagamore Hills. He has denied the charges, and his attorney declined to comment.

Moore was indicted in December 2013 on three felony counts of inducing panic for allegedly calling three Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Court employees and warning them that a bomb was about to explode.

Then Moore was indicted on three additional inducing-panic counts for allegedly making similar threats to the Geauga County courthouse in Chardon, and the Painesville county court in Lake County.

Moore was an associate with a Cleveland law firm at the time.
