A former New Hampshire judge who wrote fake evaluations of himself is now facing a felony complaint of attempting to defraud the New Hampshire judicial retirement plan.

The attorney general's office said former Nashua District Judge Paul Moore is scheduled to plead guilty and be sentenced on Wednesday.

Moore, who resigned two weeks ago, acknowledged submitting anonymous online judicial evaluations of himself. He didn't immediately return a telephone message Sunday.

New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon MacDonald says a felony complaint was filed Friday charging former Judge Paul S. Moore with one count of fraud in an attempt to allegedly "defraud the New Hampshire judicial retirement plan."

Moore, who resigned two weeks ago, is scheduled to enter a guilty plea and be sentenced on the charge on May 2 in Merrimack County Superior Court.

A New Hampshire judge who says he submitted anonymous online judicial evaluations of himself has resigned.

Circuit court Judge Paul Moore submitted a one-sentence resignation Tuesday, effective immediately.

The attorney general's office started investigating Moore's conduct last month.

The state Supreme Court sent the Judicial Conduct Committee a complaint against Moore last fall.
