Prosecutor Says Driver Cortnee Brantley In Tampa Police Shootings Is A Flight Risk, Cortnee Brantley Had A Felony Arrest 4 Years Ago For Giving A False Name To The Cops


TAMPA — Federal prosecutors said in court Tuesday they want to keep Courtnee Brantley locked up while she awaits trial on a charge that she witnessed a felony and failed to report it.

Assistant U.S. Attorney James Preston said Brantley is a flight risk. Lawyers will reconvene at 2 p.m. Thursday for a full hearing on the bail issue. Tampa police say Brantley, 22, drove away after Dantae Morris shot and killed Officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab during a traffic stop June 29.


On Tuesday morning, Brantley's family contacted private defense attorney Grady Irvin and retained him as her counsel.  Outside the courthouse, Irvin said Brantley will cooperate with authorities (OH REALLY?).  In a complaint filed in federal court, an FBI agent wrote that investigators determined that Morris used a .38-caliber gun.

The complaint says Brantley visited Morris more than once when he was in prison on cocaine charges — most recently in January. She even posed for a picture at the prison, standing with Morris, Morris' child, and two of his siblings, Audra and Dwayne Callaway.  "This establishes Brantley's prior knowledge of Morris' felony conviction," the complaint states.

Later in the day on June 29, Brantley was detained and questioned for seven hours before being released. During questioning, Brantley identified herself as the driver of the 1994 Toyota Camry but she refused to identify Morris, the complaint states. She said that she talked to Morris on the phone after the shooting, but she refused to say what they had talked about, according to the complaint, MORE FROM THIS SOURCE....

Tampa Cop Killer Dante Morris's gal pal Cortnee Brantley has a history of lying to the cops, in 2006 she was charged with a felony for giving the false name of Mary Mitchell to a Law Enforcement Officer (LEO). Cortneee Brantley is no naive scared little girl she knows the drill with the cops.
