On June 6, acting Commonwealth Attorney Justin Crocker filed a motion in the Logan Circuit Court asking to revoke the parole of Brandon Morris. The motion will be heard at Morris's next scheduled review date on June 21.

Morris was arrested in Warren County on June 4, 2018, and charged with first degree criminal mischief for allegedly causing $2,600 in damage to another vehicle parked in the Western Kentucky University Service Supply lot on May 28.

According to a police citation, Morris was seen circling a vehicle belonging to Green Castle Farms by video surveillance. Morris had been seen at a ballgame in the area that day. When brought in for questioning, Morris admitted to attending the ballgame, parking in the Service Supply lot and walking around the vehicle in question, but denied causing damage to the vehicle.

Crocker is asking for a motion to revoke parole from a prior conviction of Morris in 2015 when he pleaded guilty of two counts of custodial interference and two counts of sexual misconduct. Morris received a 10-year sentence but only served 135 days in jail before being released with conditions that included no further illegal activity within five years.

According to the indictment, Morris began a sexual relationship with a victim when she was less than 16 years old.

"It will be up to the judge," said Crocker. "We will most likely have a hearing to review the allegations against Mr. Morris. Testimony will be taken to see if there is probable cause for revoking parole."

Crocker said if the judge grants his motion to revoke, Morris will have to go back to jail.

Morris was also arrested in Warren County on May 29, 2018, after being indicted in Logan County May 25 on a single charge of theft by failure to make required disposition of property of over $10,000 or more. His wife, Dana Morris, was indicted as being an accomplice to the crime but was not arrested. Instead she was issued a criminal summons. They were both arraigned in Logan Circuit Court on May 31.

They are charged with taking over $250,000 from Joe and Darlene Ryan of Russellville.

Crocker said he could not make a motion to revoke parole on the theft charge because it allegedly occurred before the sexual misconduct case.
