Trenton Man Sentenced In DUI-Related Crash That Injured Falls Cop

A New Jersey man has been sentenced to stay at the Bucks County Correctional Facility for at least a weekend after he was involved in a DUI-related crash that injured a Falls police officer.

30-year-old Richard Morales of Trenton was sentenced Tuesday to spend a minimum of 48 hours up to 6 months in county lockup. The sentencing took place in Bucks County Court. Court records show that Morales will also have to pay a $500 fine and will have to serve 12 months on county probation concurrent to his prison term.

Morales was ordered by Judge Wallace H. Bateman Jr. to report to the county prison by 4 p.m. Feb. 17 in Doylestown Township to begin his sentence. Court papers show that he will be presumptively paroled after 48 hours, given that he serves his sentence with no incidents of misconduct.
