After months of hearings, the court has decided to dismiss the charges and reindicted the two on charges of misapplication of fiduciary property.
The charges were dismissed after the Ozona Volunteer Fire Department’s 501(c)3 nonprofit status could not be established.
According to the Ozona Stockman, the Morrows were arrested on Wednesday, March 11, and both have been arraigned and released on $10,000 PR Bond each, according to court documents.
Under court documents of bond conditions, the Morrows shall report once per month to Crockett County Adult Supervision Department as determined by the Supervision Officer and pay a $30 monthly fee at the time of reporting, they shall surrender to Fire Department President Ryan Mason all financial documents of the fire department, including credit/debit cards, checkbooks, bank statements, and all other financial instruments, and they are both prohibited from and shall have no access to the Ozona Fire Department premises and property, including all vehicles and equipment owned or operated by the Ozona Fire Department.
