CONFIRMED: Leigh Corfman Had Sexual Relationship with Her Own Lawyer
Legal depositions confirm that Leigh Corfman, who accused Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexually molesting her at age 14 during the 2017 race, had a sexual relationship with Eddie Sexton, her former lawyer, and that they dated as teenagers.
In a deposition for the ongoing legal battle between Corfman and Moore, Sexton confirmed to the court that he dated the Moore accuser as a teenager. Sexton claimed they dated when he was around 17 and she was around 15.
Their difference in age and timeline of their lives and dating seems to suggest Corfman may have been as young as 13 and Sexton 15 when the troubled teenage girl dated Sexton, the older future attorney.
Sexton maintained he did not have a sexual relationship with Corfman during the time they dated as teenagers, but went on to confirm that the two did later have sexual relations. After repeated questioning, Sexton refused to explain when the sexual relationship began and ended. It is unclear whether Corfman and her future lawyer were dating at the time of their sexual relationship.
Strangely, it took several objections from Corfman’s lawyer before Sexton would answer the question regarding their relationship, and after more back and forth between lawyer, he refused to answer the question about when the sexual relationship began.
Legal documents also reveal that, around the time Corfman began dating Sexton, she had recently been placed in her father’s custody in a mutual arrangement reached by her divorced parents. According to a 1979 legal document, Corfman was experiencing “certain disciplinary and behavior issues” that led the parents to believe should benefit from her father’s presence.
It should be noted that this may implicate Corfman in two lies. In a 2017 interview with TODAY, Corfman seemed to suggest the alleged event with Moore led her engage in behavior and to descend on a type of downward spiral that took “decades” to recover from, though the 1979 legal document reveals her parents were already worried about her behavior prior to this event.
Additionally, in the same TODAY interview, Corfman claimed she was not allowed to date by her parents during this time. Sexton directly contradicted this claim by admitting in the deposition that he and Corfman were in a relationship as teenagers, when Corfman would have been under 15 years of age. Corfman entered her father’s custody several months before her 15th birthday.
Interestingly, in a previous deposition, it was revealed that Sexton claimed Corfman “eff’d everyone in Gadsden” and that her father threw “sex parties when [Corfman] was young,” and that Corfman was “put in with that as a young girl.”
Another stunning statement from the deposition claims that Corfman’s father, a doctor, held “sex parties when [Corfman] was young,” and that Corfman was “put in with that as a young girl.”
Sexton also noted that he planned to drop Corfman as a client because he did not believe her claims, and at least one Breitbart reporter said that Sexton “Sat there several times talking s*** about his client [Corfman],” according to Lantrip’s deposition.
Even legal observers inclined to disbelieve Corfman’s claims are unfounded were shocked to learn even Corfman’s own legal team did not believe her.
Moore recently declared his candidacy for the 2020 senatorial race in Alabama, hoping to unseat Democrat Doug Jones, who was buoyed to his position due to both the allegations against Moore and a propaganda campaign titled Project Birmingham, aimed at associating Moore with fictitious Russian Twitter accounts.
