Norfolk DA won’t face criminal charges in crash

Morrissey fined $100 after releasing records showing he fainted, was not inebriated

QUINCY — Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey was cleared of criminal wrongdoing for his role in a July 16 four-car crash in Milton that sent him and three others to hospitals, but the Quincy Democrat was ordered to pay a $100 civil fine for a marked lanes violation.

Morrissey, who was at Quincy District Court for a closed-door hearing before a clerk-magistrate Monday morning, released a variety of records to show that he fainted and was not inebriated or distracted by his phone when the crash occurred.
