During her sentencing, she expressed regret for her behavior. “I apologize for the pain that I caused and I know my actions were irresponsible,” Morris told the judge, blaming “my bad habits” for the incident. “I would never have done it intentionally.”
Morris could have served 30 years in prison for her actions, but her guilty plea reduced her sentence significantly. She also told the judge that the boys took advantage of her sexually while she was passed out. The teens have been tested for HIV and results have returned negative so far. They are tested every six months and will have to be for some time.
One of the mother’s said Morris’s actions hurt her dearly. “I cared for her. I cared for her son,” said the mother of one of the 14-year-olds Morris abused. “I feel like she planned and plotted. I feel betrayed.”
Morris will have to register as a child sex offender for 25 years when she is released from prison. She has already given up custody of her child.
