Morris, Adams to be sentenced for racketeering, money laundering

“I’m sure there are a lot of people who don’t think that, but he’s serving 71 months with three years probation,” Ridlehoover said. “Charlie Morris has lost everything.”

Barry Beroset, Adams’ attorney, had no comment on the sentencing hearing.

Ridlehoover said Morris “would tell you” he wasn’t mentally fit to serve as sheriff during his last term in office.

“He was out of control. He got the big head,” he said.

In his letter to Ashley, Morris offered to forgive the new sheriff for “turning me in to the federal authorities.”

“I hold no ill will or malice toward you or anyone else at the Sheriff’s Office,” the letter said.

“What you did was right and it will always be the right decision. I forgive you and all the others and the past is the past,” it said.
