According to reports, the complainant told investigators that after finding some inappropriate videos on her electronic tablet, she asked her daughters if either had ever engaged in any inappropriate activity. The complainant’s 11-year-old daughter told her that Morris had “touched her private area” on three separate occasions. The complainant’s 14-year-old daughter told her that Morris had “sexually assaulted her multiple times” over 7 years. She stated it began with Morris inappropriately touching her, but starting in February of 2018 he began forcing the girl to have intercourse. The report states the intercourse occurred at least 2 to 3 times weekly.

Morris was contacted by investigators on September 15th in reference to the complaints. He denied touching the 11-year-old victim but stated that he may have accidentally put his hand near the girl’s private area while the two were sleeping on the couch once. He told investigators that he notified the victim’s mother about the incident. When questioned about intercourse with the 14-year-old, Morris told investigators that “it probably happened while he was asleep, but he didn’t recall.” He also told investigators that sometimes he woke up and would notice the 14-year-old leaving the bedroom, but he thought nothing of it.

Deputies charged Morris with Third Degree Rape, Forcible Sexual Battery and Misdemeanor Sexual Battery. He was taken to East Baton Rouge Parish Prison where he is currently being held.
