Judge orders El Paso city councilman charged with domestic violence to stay away from wife

EL PASO, Texas - An El Paso County judge has issued an emergency protective order prohibiting city councilman Sam Morgan from coming near — or having any contact with — his wife following his arrest for a domestic violence incident last week.

The judge's order also forbids Sam Morgan, who represents District 4 in northeast El Paso, from possessing a gun or other weapons.

Morgan was arrested on a domestic violence charge last Friday and was released from jail after posting a $3,000 bond.

His lawyer said Morgan has been cooperating fully with police investigating the incident and plans to continue with his normal council duties.
