Robbie Morgan Sentenced to 311 Days in Prison
http://internetnewsroom.com/wgrv/
Tuesday, April 2, 2013
by Jim Miller
Former Greene County Sheriff's Deputy Robbie Morgan was sentenced this morning in U.S. District Court to 311 days in federal prison.

Morgan pleaded guilty in December to a misdemeanor charge of deprivation of rights under color of law against a Greene County woman who he committed a sexual assault against on Christmas Day of 2011.

Magistrate Judge Dennis H. Inman told Morgan that the sentence was based on the amount of time off for good behavior he would receive if the sentence was one day longer than the maximum sentence of one year. Inman described the case as "abominably difficult" but stated that Morgan "did a despicable thing" and that "mistakes produce consequences."

Morgan addressed the court prior to sentencing and apologized to the victim, his family and the community for his actions. He said that everyone has skeletons in their closets, and his skeleton is front and center for all to see.

The victim spoke briefly during the hearing, and in reference to Morgan stated "he destroyed my life."

Morgan resigned from the Sheriff's Department in March, 2012 after allegations of misconduct surfaced. He is the defendant in two separate lawsuits filed in U.S. District Court last year. In both suits, Morgan is alleged to have assaulted a woman while on official duty with the Sheriff's Department.

In addition to the sentence of 311 days, Morgan will be on one year of supervised probation. He will begin his sentence in a federal penitentary later this summer and remains free on bond until a reporting date is determined.

He should of got years behind bars without parole. It's sad that just bc he was working for the law enforcement does not give him the right to treat others so badly. He will pay for everything he has done to everyone he has hurt. Your a worthless awful awful person. So many people in this town are more than happy were jumping up and down that your gonna be behind bars for breaking the law. Greene county needs better law enforcement. Karma is following you Robbie Morgan......

I feel sorry for the woman and the countless other women that he sexually abused and raped during his traffic stops. That is the worst kind of rape, rape by an authority figure with a badge. He should be doing no less than 25 years! A plea bargain with a good old boy Greene County judge, I hope the TBI fries the other Greene County good old boys who have been abusing their power for years!

Personally I don't think it was enough time.. He should have his sorry azz locked up for 25 years or more! This is pretty much a slap in the face as far as I'm concerned.

Personally, I think that the sentence of 311 days was very light.

I think he'll serve, MAX 3 months, then they'll let him out on good behavior or something like that.
