Indiana Cop Arrested after Exposing himself while asking Women for Directions

Porter County deputy John Morris, 24, was identified as the suspect in four cases stemming from complaints from four different women on four different occasions.

Three of the incidents took place in May and one took place this month.

After a female resident gave police a license plate number from an incident that happened on June 7, Porter County authorities were alerted the suspect was one of their own after spotting a Porter County Sheriff’s Office patrol parked in the driveway of the home linked to the plate number.

After questioning Morris at the sheriff’s department, it was determined he was the culprit in the most recent incident and likely a few others around the county as well, Porter County Sheriff spokesman Sgt. Jamie Erow said.

The investigation was then turned over to the Valparaiso Police Department, according to nwi.com.

The Accusations

The first incident happened May 3 after Morris stopped a woman in the parking lot of a Kohl’s asking for directions to Interstate 94 where she observed the officer, who was off-duty at the time, exposing himself.

The second incident occurred on May 21. A female said Morris stopped in front of her home asking for directions when she saw he was exposing himself.

Morris is also accused of exposing himself on May 22 after stopping in the parking lot of a Walmart to ask a woman for directions.

In a fourth incident reported on June 7, Morris stopped outside a woman’s home asking for directions to a bank when she observed him exposing himself.

The Porter County Sheriff’s Department issued a press release earlier this year stating Morris was one of five of its officers sworn into duty this January.

According to the release, Morris obtained a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Indiana State University before he was hired as a jailer in August of 2016.

On Friday, Morris was called back to the sheriff’s department where his employment was terminated before he was booked into jail on misdemeanors.

He was released after posting an $800 bond.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
