PRAIRIE VILLAGE, KS (KCTV) -
The Johnson County district attorney is beginning the process of ousting a Prairie Village councilman who let a homeless man spend the night in City Hall.
DA Steve Howe announced Thursday his office filed ouster proceedings against Councilman David Morrison.
"Our office has alleged violations of criminal statutes including: criminal trespass, theft, and official misconduct along with other facts to support this petition. Mr. Morrison's actions are a breach of his duties and responsibilities as a Prairie Village City Councilman and should result in his forfeiture of office pursuant to K.S.A. 60-1205," Howe said in a written statement along with the announcement.
City staff discovered Kelly Malone in a break room at 7 a.m. Oct. 31, prompting a city attorney to file a formal ethics complaint. Morrison later explained that his old friend, once a mortgage broker, developed a drug habit that eventually made him homeless and criminally involved. His friend said he had a price on his head because of something he knew and after making calls to United Way and Morrison's assistant pastor, Morrison decided to let Malone stay at City Hall - a place he felt was safe because it was connected to the police department.
Phone records showed Malone made more than $9 worth of long-distance phone calls while at City Hall, all of which Morrison paid it back.
Police investigated and realized Malone had access to restricted areas of the building, public records and even the mayor's office. A big concern came from female employees who felt they were put in danger.
