After Weeks of No Response, TN Judge Casey Moreland Answers Questions From Investigators

WSMV Channel 4 After more than two weeks of repeatedly reaching out to Judge Casey Moreland to no avail, investigators with the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office finally spoke with the embattled judge.

Investigators first reached out to Moreland on Jan. 26, and a sheriff’s department spokesman confirmed they repeatedly tried to reach to him with no response until Monday.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Karla West emailed the Channel 4 I-Team and wrote, “Judge Casey Moreland reached out to the sheriff's office today and answered questions in regards to our on-going administrative investigation of former DCSO employee Lucas Frawley. To be clear, Judge Moreland is not - and has never been - the subject of this administrative investigation.”

Worrick Robinson, Moreland’s attorney, emailed the I-Team and said Moreland was unaware that sheriff’s investigators needed to speak personally with him because investigators had already spoken with his staff.

Frawley was specifically assigned to Moreland’s courtroom and escorted Moss several times.

Two weeks after Frawley resigned from the department, he posted that he and Moss were engaged.

But both Frawley and Moss deny that they were romantically involved while he was employed with the sheriff’s office and while she was an inmate.

The sheriff’s administrative investigation focuses on whether Frawley and Moss had either a romantic or sexual relationship while she was an inmate.

Relationships between inmates and deputies are forbidden by the sheriff’s office.

A former sheriff’s office employee said sexual behavior between deputies and inmates can also result in criminal charges, because a deputy is considered an authority figure.

The heat is certainly on Judge Moreland and from what I've read, it's well deserved. I hope judges in TN are afraid they'll be next.
