Fake court investigator was a serial pedophile

Fake court investigator was a serial pedophile

October 16, 2009

A Manchester man who had pretended to be a forensic scientist and had used fake evidence during several hundred court cases has been found guilty of raping three young girls.

Gene Morrison had previously denied 33 sex related offences spanning a 30-year period. The 51-year-old man was convicted on 14 charges by a jury during a trial at Minshull Crown Court.

The teenage girls volunteered information after Morrison emerged as a fraud and was subsequently jailed in 2007 for fraudulently acting as a forensic expert.

Morrison, who is already serving a five-year sentence, will receive further prison time in December. He was found guilty of three counts of raping a minor, four counts of engaging in sexual activity with a minor, six counts of indecent assault and one count of perverting the course of justice. The girls were under 16 years of age at the time, the court was informed.

Deemed by the prosecution to be a sexual predator with a special liking for young girls,  Morrison used his local church between the late 1970s and 2007 as a meeting point to get in contact with several young girls, who he then would manipulate into having sex with him.

The jury was told that at one occasion, he whipped a young girl on the buttocks using a belt if she would make any mistake while reading out long exerts from the Bible.

Prosecutor Neil Flewitt QC painted the accused as a superficially charismatic individual who go into the lives of kids for satisfying his twisted sexuality.

During court proceedings, Morrison described religion as his guiding light.

He said that all people suffer from weaknesses and that it was to each individual to work things through. Mr Flewitt answered to the accused that he had infiltrated the lives of girls one after the other and that his sex drive as well as Christianity are the driving forces behind his life.

The teenage girls victimised by Morrison came forward following his February 2007 conviction to a five-year jail sentence for having posed in courtrooms as an expert forensic investigator.

At that time, Morrison was found guilty on of 22 counts including perjury, deception and perverting the course of justice after he performed forensic tasks across the country despite being totally unqualified.
