A Virginia lawmaker has been accused of having sex with a minor at his office after a grand jury issued five indictments against the Henrico Democratic Delegate.
In August, police were called to check on a 17-year-old girl by her father who was worried about her relationship with 56-year-old Joseph Morrissey.
Police found the girl with the lawmaker at his townhouse.
Morrissey denied any wrong doing, saying she was a secretary and their relationship was “appropriate and professional.”
Special Prosecutor William Neely, however, says, “He had sex with her twice in his law office and texted someone about it.”
Neely also said the victim has given “three significantly different and contradictory statements to law enforcements concerning the acts and their relationship.”
