August 16, 2012 Hamblen ex-deputy Dexter Morris To Be Resentenced

The convictions of ex-Hamblen deputy Dexter Morris were recently upheld by a three-judge panel of the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, but the case was sent back to federal district court for re-sentencing.

Morris received a 15-year sentence for depriving two women of their constitutional rights through sexual abuse during traffic stops in 2005.

Morris wanted a lighter sentence while prosecutors argued that Morris should have faced a more severe sentencing range.
