COVINGTON- District Attorney Warren Montgomery reports that a St. Tammany Parish jury found Charles Morgan, 58, of Slidell, guilty Thursday (Aug. 29) of Sexual Battery of a Juvenile under 13. Morgan faces up to 99 years in prison when he is sentenced by District Judge Richard Swartz, Jr., on October 18.

The crime came to light in August 2014, when the victim responded with reluctance to a family member’s suggestion that they visit the defendant’s residence. When the adult family member asked why victim did not like spending time with Morgan, the victim revealed that Morgan had sexually assaulted him on multiple occasions over several years. One of the victim’s parents then immediately notified law enforcement.

Morgan was ultimately arrested and charged. He has had had prior felony convictions for possession of cocaine and methamphetamine, as well as multiple DWI convictions.
After deliberation, the jury returned with a verdict of guilty as charged. The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Luke Lancaster and Tiffany Dover.
