BRIGHTON, N.Y. -- Henrietta Town Supervisor Jack Moore pleaded not guilty to a harassment charge Wednesday. Moore is accused of repeatedly driving by a former town worker's home and honking his horn.

Scott Mangino claims he was harassed into retirement and that harassment continued outside his home. Moore's attorney believes the case is political.

"The truth is this is politically motivated and Mr. Moore has admitted that he owns property across the street and he's hit several deer. He's been sounding his horn to scare away wildlife,” said Vincent Merante, Moore’s Attorney.

Merante asked the judge to dismiss the case today. The judge denied that request. Moore lost his re-election bid last month.
