Morris appeared before United States Magistrate Judge Jon York on April 22, 2021.

The charges and allegations contained in indictment are merely accusations of criminal conduct, not evidence. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and convicted through due process of law.

This case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigation.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Matt Wilson is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.
