St. Joseph County Sheriff's Deputy pleads guilty in prescription drug larceny case

by

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY (WKZO) -- A St. Joseph Sheriff's s Officer who pleaded guilty to two counts of larceny for taking a prescription drug from the County Jail’s clinic will not serve jail time.

Thirty-nine-year-old veteran Sheriff's Deputy Steven Morris pleaded guilty to the misdemeanors to avoid trial on more serious charges that were initially filed against him.  He was given probation as part of the plea deal.

The drug Morris took, Tramadol, is a painkiller that is also known as Ultram.  It had been prescribed for two inmates in the jail.

Morris has been on unpaid administrative leave since the allegations surfaced in January.
