Louisville to Pay Whistleblower Cop $450,000

Louisville Metro Government has agreed to pay $450,000 to former police detective Barron Morgan who says he was demoted to patrol officer on the graveyard shift for trying to help an imprisoned woman prove her innocence on a homicide charge.

” … after Kentucky State Police, who had investigated the 1998 murder, complained that Morgan was assisting the Innocence Project, a Louisville police commander “cursed” him and he was ordered to stop cooperating.”
