Corley due in court Thursday

An ex-con who led local law enforcement officers on a wild, highspeed chase here Feb. 3 is due in court before Judge Tommy Wilson Thursday as authorities attempt to revoke his probation. Morgan Corley, 37, will be the subject of the revocation hearing. He has spent much of his adult life in prison. Corley did two stints in the state penal system from August 3, 1998 to April 12, 2002 and January 25, 2005 to August 30, 2013. He had multiple convictions in Lamar County for criminal damage to property, auto theft, entering an auto and burglary. The local burglary counts are the subject of the revocation proceedings. Corley had a Pike County conviction for theft by receiving stolen property and a Butts County conviction for theft by taking. In 2002, he was convicted of racketeering in Jones County where authorities said Corley, then 25, headed up a huge meth distribution organization that trafficked heavily in a smokeable form of the drug known as ice. Corley was featured on two National Geographic TV shows, ‘˜Hustlers’ and ‘˜Hard Times’. The charges on the high speed chase are scheduled to be taken up by the grand jury here Sept. 14.
