lamprene cost J acob (Jake) Moore was born in 1983 to Larry and Carolyn Moore, both public school teachers. Moore grew up in various southern Indiana communities including Jackson, Madison, Perry, and Spencer counties before moving to Shelby County during high school.
Moore attended the Honors College at Ball State University and graduated http://pedrolujanphoto.com/?author=9 Cum Laude in 2005 http://carsoundsinc.com/clifford/clfford-5606x/ . After graduating, Moore moved to Arizona where his eventual wife Carla was finishing her undergraduate degree. Moore met Carla, who was born in the Philippines and moved to Arizona as a child, when both were working at an Arizona summer camp in 2003.
After Carla’s graduation, the Moores moved to Texas where Jake earned a J.D. and MBA at Texas Tech University (Coach Bob Knight was there at the time!). During law school, Moore interned for a Texas judge and served in a number of leadership roles, including as President of the Federalist Society and “Chief Counsel” for the Criminal Trial Lawyer’s Association.
In 2009, Jake and Carla married, and after Jake’s graduation, moved “Back Home Again” to Indiana. His first job was with Sorrell, Hamilton, and Mastin, a firm outside Indianapolis.
While with SHM, Moore practiced criminal law throughout central Indiana, including Delaware and Tippecanoe counties (home to Ball State and Purdue). This experience proved valuable when Moore later represented numerous Indiana University students. During this time, Moore also coached wrestling at Mt. Vernon High School.
The Moores later moved to Monroe County when Jake joined the law firm of Carl Lamb and Associates and Carla began pursuing a Ph.D. at Indiana University. Here, Moore practiced almost exclusively criminal law, and practiced all over southern Indiana, but most extensively in Monroe County.
In January 2014, Moore opened the Law Firm of Jacob Moore. During his career, Moore has handled literally hundreds of criminal cases, ranging from A Felonies to misdemeanors. Moore also has tried felony jury trials as lead chair, and served as second chair on numerous other felony jury trials.
Moore says Monroe County has always been important to him. “Twenty five years ago my sister came to IU, and I’ve basically loved the city ever since. I have a lot of great memories here and was so excited when Carla and I got to move here.”
Asked why he’s running, Moore said, “First, Monroe County is uniquely beautiful and diverse, and it’s a great place to live. After eight years of the current administration, it’s time for new ideas and leadership. If given the honor to serve as Prosecutor, I’ll be the hardest working person in the office, and do all I can to protect our community from crime.”
