Ann Arbor man pleads guilty to home invasion, unarmed robbery in Saline break-in

By Kyle Feldscher

The Ann Arbor man accused of holding down a man while someone else ripped a bolted safe from a wall pleaded guilty to two charges last week, according to court records.

Josh Morris pleaded guilty to first-degree home invasion and unarmed robbery in Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge Archie Brown’s courtroom last week, according to court records.

The charges stem from an incident on Nov. 5, 2010, when police say Andrew Wszolek let Morris and another man into an acquaintance’s apartment in Saline. Morris held the acquaintance down while Wszolek and the other man ripped a bolted safe from the wall, according to Saline police.

Morris was arrested in December at his parents’ home in Ann Arbor by Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office investigators, who were assisting Saline police with the case. Morris, then 19, ran afoul of the law again in October, when he was arraigned on a charge of minor in possession of alcohol.

He is not currently lodged at the Washtenaw County Jail, according to jail records.

Morris was originally charged with two counts of first-degree home invasion, one charge of safebreaking and one charge of unarmed robbery.

According to court records, Morris will be sentenced on Dec. 21 and is facing a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $5,000 fine on the home invasion charge and 15 years in prison for the unarmed robbery charge.

Why is he not in jail. Found guilty, and gets to run around loose for more than a month?

All I can say is when one plays this serious crime game, they must pay with cash and time in prison. They always get caught sooner or later. (this sounds like later).
