Macy Man Sentenced to 24 Months for Domestic Assault

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Dwight Morris, 37, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha for Domestic Assault by a Habitual Offender. The Honorable Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Morris to 24 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal prison system. After his release from prison, Morris will serve a three-year term of supervised release.

In August 2018 the female victim reported to law enforcement that Morris had physically abused her over a period of days, including striking her face and body and choking her. Officers observed bruising on various parts of the victim’s body consistent with her reports. Morris has two previous convictions for crimes, which, if subject to federal jurisdiction, would constitute domestic assault.

This case was investigated by Omaha Nation Law Enforcement Services and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
