Georgia Tech Student Indicted on Charges Involving Online Sex
Man was reportedly sending pornographic pictures to whom he thought was a 13-year-old girl, but was in fact a member of the Dougherty County Police Internet Crimes Against Children team.
A fifth year mechanical engineering student at Georgia Tech has been indicted on 25 counts of online sex in Dougherty County.
Atlanta police arrested Adam Morse, 22, in early June after investigators say the Meldrim, Ga., native sent two dozen pornographic pictures of himself and lots of sexually explicit conversation messages to whom he thought was a 13-year-old girl, but was in fact a member of the Dougherty County Police Internet Crimes Against Children team.
He was later transported to the Dougherty County jail. On Thursday according to Albany’s WALB News, prosecutors brought charges against Morse including obscene internet contact with a child and distribution of material depicting sexual conduct or nudity.
He is free on bond, but if convicted could face 20 years in prison.
According to the news report, Morse did not try to arrange a visit with the minor, but police say that he “could have possibly moved in that direction in the future.”
A graduate of South Effingham High School, Morse was an ROTC member at Georgia Tech. According to his Twitter account, he has plans to be an officer in the Army after graduation.
