BANGOR — A former Brewer City Council member and the district attorney are working on a plea agreement in the charge of lying to police.
Thomas Morelli resigned as deputy mayor on June 3, the day he was charged with making a false report. He claimed someone had hacked his social media account and made racist statements about the George Floyd killing.
His attorney, Jeff Silverstein, said Tuesday afternoon that a court hearing was held by phone and now his client must decide if he wants to move forward with a trial or “whether a plea resolution is best for all.”
He said the court is expected to schedule a status hearing within the next couple of weeks.
