Police officer accused of falsifying reports to appear in court next month

A police officer accused of falsifying police reports will appear in court next month after his initial appearance was postponed this morning.

Officer Brian Morris will now make his first appearance on Nov. 18 after his attorney requested a delay.

Six other officers have already pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges.

All are part of the Honolulu Police Department’s Selective Enforcement Unit which organizes roadblock checkpoints to catch motorists under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Morris and the others are accused of inputting the names of two sergeants on arrest reports to reflect they were at the scene when they were not in order to pad their pay.

Prosecutors say the actions of the officers has resulted in the dismissal of more than 200 DUI cases.
