President/CEO Of Temp Agency In Hernando Faces New Child Pornography Charge

HERNANDO, Miss. (localmemphis.com) - A Hernando, Mississippi, businessman previously accused of filming women in his company’s restroom now faces a new charge of producing child pornography.

23-year-old David Hunter Moore was arrested Thursday night about 10:00 p.m. on the latest charge. Moore is President & CEO of Moore Advanced, a temp agency on Highway 51. According to Hernando Police, he was arrested at the business.

Moore was arrested earlier this month on a charge of photographing/filming without permission. He was out of jail on $50,000 bond when he was arrested on this latest charge.

Moore’s first charge came after investigators said an employee noticed a blinking light for a camera hidden in the women’s restroom. Investigators believe the camera had been hidden there for at least six months.

According to police, the child porn charge comes after video showed employees and children changing in the restroom.

Moore’s bond on the latest charge is set at $200,000. He will be required to surrender his passport and will be placed on electronic monitoring.

Martin Zummach, the attorney for Moore, sent Local 24 News the following statement: 

"Mr. Moore is guilty of no crime.

Mr. Moore is being persecuted by a disgruntled former employee who has proudly admitted in her media interviews last week that she contacted civil lawyers before calling law enforcement to inform them of what she supposedly found in the bathroom. She was more concerned with financial gain rather than the protection of her co-employees if she really felt anyone was ever in danger. The motivation of her financial gain should be clear by the circumstances.

The police officer assigned to investigate her allegations had the discretion, unfortunately, to level any charge he might want to bring no matter how non-existent the evidence was.

Sadly, sensational criminal charges are reported before the facts are known.

I sincerely hope the media expends the same ink and air time when Mr. Moore is eventually exonerated. Unfortunately, for Mr. Moore and his family, they will have to wait for justice to grind slowly all the while under a cloud of scandalous allegations. Mr. Moore and his family believe in the ideal of the public's fairness and looks forward to his day on court."
