Morsey waived his right to a pre-sentence investigation, and was sentenced by Judge David W. Nibert to one to five years in the state penitentiary for the felony and one year in the regional jail for the misdemeanor.
The house of ill fame was a stolen van in which Morsey was traveling in the Chloe area of Calhoun.

The complaint says during September, 2013, Morsey did let three other men, residents of the southern Calhoun area, have sexual contact with the minor in the back seat of the stolen Dodge Caravan.
The complaint says Morsey did receive money for pimping the minor, with one subject agreeing to "the right price" and paying $44 for oral sex and another subject paying $50 twice for oral sex, according to the complaint.
State Police brought charges against Morsey regarding withholding his identity, giving false names(s) and date of birth, the complaint indicating the he had outstanding warrants from Charleston WV to New York state.
Morsey appears to have used other names, including Jamie Hammond, JB Jones, James R. Brick and James Harper.
