Woman found guilty of illegally registering to vote, DA says

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis woman that pled guilty in 2015 to two felony offenses was found guilty this week of illegally registering to vote in 2019, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.

Pamela Moses, 44, could serve four to eight years in prison, officials said. She will be sentenced on Dec. 10 in Criminal Court and remains free on $10,000 bond.

In April 2015, she pled guilty to tampering with evidence and forgery, both felonies, and to misdemeanor counts of perjury, stalking, theft under $500 and escape, according to documents. She was placed on probation for eight years.

Under the law, she also was rendered infamous because of her felony convictions and lost her rights of citizenship, which included her right to vote, a release said.

She was permanently deemed ineligible to register and vote in Tennessee because of the tampering with evidence conviction.

According to a release, proof at trial this week showed that on Sept. 3, 2019, Moses filed a certificate of restoration and application for voter registration with the Shelby County Election Commission, falsely asserting that her sentence had expired and that she was eligible to register to vote.

Moses was still serving her 2015 sentence on unsupervised probation at the time she filed the restoration documents, the courts said.
