A man was sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty Monday to a charge related to his attempt to abduct and assault a young boy in a local Walmart restroom.
Donald Allen Morrison, 52, of Trenton, pleaded guilty to third-degree attempted criminal sexual conduct with a minor. Circuit Judge Donald Hocker sentenced him to the maximum sentence for the offense. Morrison was already on the sex offender registry for a conviction in 1992 and he will be eligible for indefinite civil commitment under state law upon completion of his sentence.
In June 2019, Greenwood police went to the Walmart at 300 Bypass 25 NE, where an 8-year-old boy said a man offered him $5 to touch him inappropriately in the bathroom. The boy said no, and as he was washing his hands the man came from behind and grabbed him, a report said, holding the boy in place.
