George Morgan - Repeat Sex Offender - Arrested for abuse of 9 year old

Police arrested George Morgan, 22, of Nebraska City Thursday afternoon for suspicion of first degree sexual assault of a nine-year-old girl.

Deputy Otoe County Attorney Tim Noerrlinger said out of concern for public safety he expects to ask for a bond in excess of $150,000 at Morgan’s court appearance on Monday.
Morgan, who is listed on the Nebraska sex offender registry, was arrested in 2005 and charged with the first degree sexual assault of six-year-old Nebraska City girl.
In the 2005 case, District Judge Randall Rehmeier ordered a psychiatric examination to determine if Morgan was competent to stand trial. The state later entered a plea agreement dropping the charge to attempted second degree sexual assault.

Morgan completed a one year sentence after 246 days the Otoe County Detention Center in April of 2006.

He was ordered to comply with the Nebraska sexual offender registry, but his address is not published on the state’s publicly accessible website for sex offenders. The state publishes the addresses of “level 3” offenders, which are considered to be at a high risk to re-offend.

In the 2005 case, Morgan was held on a $25,000 bond.
