Former E. Ky. deputy facing charges

Kentucky State Police say a former eastern Kentucky sheriff's deputy is facing charges involving drugs, sex and misconduct.

The police post in Ashland says Matthew Morrison was arrested on charges that stem from his time as a deputy with the Carter County Sheriff's Office.

A statement says police received a tip in February that Morrison allegedly didn't serve an arrest warrant in exchange for sexual favors. Police say an investigation into that tip led officers to determine other charges were warranted.

Morrison was arrested Friday on charges of sodomy, trafficking in a controlled substance and official misconduct. Police said he was terminated as a deputy before the investigation began.

Online jail records didn't indicate whether Morrison has an attorney.
