Stanton County Sheriff Arrested

Joe Denoyer - September 10, 2016 6:46 pm

Stanton County Sheriff Cody Morris was arrested Aug. 28 on an allegation of domestic violence.

According to Kansas Bureau of Investigation special agent Bruce Miller, Stanton County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Morris, 604 W. Grant St., Johnson City, at 8:30 p.m. Aug. 28 at his residence.

According to Miller, Morris was taken to the Grant County Jail in Ulysses, where he was held on $1,000 bail.

Grant County Sheriff Lance Babcock said Morris posted bail within 24 hours of his arrest and was released.

Employees of the Stanton County Sheriff’s Office declined to comment about the arrest Thursday and referred all questions to the KBI, which is handling the investigation to avoid a conflict of interest.

“The local officers did the initial arrest on the alleged incident. Then they requested our assistance, since it was the sheriff,” Miller said.

Miller said the case is being handled by the Kansas Attorney General’s office at the request of the Stanton County Attorney’s office.

Jennifer Rapp, public information officer with the Attorney General’s office, said that no formal charges have been filed yet.
