The issue arose due to Officer Morgan providing evidence to the Innocence Project that a lady serving 10 years in prison was actually not guilty of homicide. This assistance allegedly brought the ire of the Kentucky State Police who felt Officer Morgan was jeopardizing the integrity of their investigation, arrest and the subsequent conviction of Susan Jean King. As a result of Officer Morgan doing the right thing, he was reportedly berated, demoted, and placed on the graveyard shift.
Integrity and honesty are never bad traits. Kudos to Officer Morgan for exhibiting both.
