Hank Morris Not As Fortunate As Hevesi


Hank Morris, the chief political adviser to former Comptroller Alan Hevesi, was denied release from prison today for the second time, Gannett’s Haley Viccaro reports.

Morris is serving a 26-month to four-year sentence for fraud involving Hevesi and the state’s pension fund at the Hudson Correctional Facility in Columbia County. Hevesi was granted parole after serving a year in jail.

Morris pleaded guilty to getting kickbacks from investors seeking business with the pension fund.

The state Board of Parole ordered Morris to be held for an additional nine months during his appearance yesterday. His first appearance before the board in February also resulted in a denial, and he will appear again in August.

Morris was committed to prison on March 1, 2011, and given the earliest release date of June 18, 2012.

His conditional release date is Oct. 18, 2013, and maximum expiration date is Feb. 18, 2015.
