Missouri Man Says 11-Year-Old Seduced Him

A 67-year-old Missouri man charged with statutory rape, statutory sodomy and child molestation claims his 11-year-old victim seduced him and that he tried to break the relationship off.


According to KY3, Cleo Morgan says his young frequently spent the night at the home he and his wife shared. The man's wife allegedly stated she once caught the girl and her husband in the act, but the girl denied anything was going on "because she liked him."


But instead of going to police, the wife went to the girl's home and stated she was no longer welcome to the home because she was "breaking up" her marriage. According to the probable cause statement, the girl would often spend the night on the couple's couch, but would be asked to jump in the bed by Cleo Morgan.


Morgan admitted to molesting the girl, but said he broke it off because the girl was getting possessive and blamed her for seducing him in the first place.
