Cortnee Brantley pleads not guilty to federal charge in Dontae Morris case

TAMPA — Cortnee Brantley pleaded not guilty Wednesday to a federal charge of misprision of a felony.

Authorities say Brantley, 22, concealed the fact that Dontae Morris, accused of killing two Tampa police officers, was a felon in possession of ammunition.

Brantley was the driver of the car that police had stopped before Officers Jeffrey Kocab and David Curtis were shot in late June. Morris, a passenger, is charged with their murders.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Pizzo advised Brantley of her rights and the charge.

He set a trial for the week beginning Oct. 4 before Judge James S. Moody Jr. He also set a status conference for Sept. 2.
