College student arrested in Web sting

ALBANY, Ga. — On Tuesday, 22-year-old Georgia Tech student was sitting in the Dougherty County Jail awaiting prosecution on multiple counts of obscene Internet contact with a child, a jail spokeswoman said.

Atlanta Police arrested Adam Morse at his residence Friday on warrants including contacting and furnishing obscene material to a minor, said Dougherty County Police Department Detective Sergeant Chad Kirkpatrick.

The arrest resulted from county police efforts as part of the Internet Crimes against Children organization with the GBI and other law enforcement agencies to combat those who prey on children.

No bail has been set for Morse and there is a hold on him for Columbia County Sheriff’s deputies. The deputies also have warrants on him for Internet chatting with someone who he thought was an underage girl, Kirkpatrick said.

“On Jan. 29, our investigation began,” Kirkpatrick said. “He (Morse) contacted us believing he was chatting with a 13-year-old female. He started a conversation talking about explicit sexual acts. He also exposed himself on his webcam.”

As the investigation went on, Morse sent images of adult oral pornography to a person who he thought was a 13-year-old girl, Kirkpatrick said. He sent the images while he masturbated in front of his webcam, Kirkpatrick added.

Kirkpatrick said he and fellow officers had to file subpoenas to obtain emails and other information to find Morse’s address. Then Atlanta police executed a search warrant, arrested Morse and confiscated three computers.

An examination of the computers contents could lead to more charges from Atlanta levied against Morse by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Investigations like this take training, time and effort to get possible predators off the streets. If the Dougherty County Commission cuts 16 positions from the police, as it is considering in its 2013 budget, programs such as the Internet Crimes against Children effort could be cut, said County Police Chief Don Cheek.

“I think it has to impact our ability to investigate,” Cheek said. “We could lose officers with the specific training needed for these investigations.”

ASU will never be in the same class as the others. You put ASU in because you knew there would be a response to your ignorance.

You know, I just have to ask. What do I supposedly hate? All I have ever done is use facts to ask questions that no one seems to want asked, or answered. I don't believe I have ever said one word about ASU, and I could from first hand experience. So why am I a hater?

"ASU, HCBU's need love too."

Just so you know, it is HBCU. Again, consider having someone who is literate to proof your silliness. You will look less ignorant that way.

It takes pretty good academic credentials to get accepted at Tech. Therefore, Adam should be one of the brightest prisoners in the correctional system. Now his reputation is scarred for life. What a waste. Welcome to a lifetime on Georgia's Sex Offender Registry, Mr. Morse.

Cartman I disagree. He will be one of the most “intelligent” people in prison but defiantly not one of the Brightest. He knew if he was trying to meet underage children there was a High risk of getting caught sooner or later. Keep playing with fire and sooner or later you will get burned. He could have met some girls DAD and been beat to death, he is just lucky it was just the Police.

He's innocent until found guilty in a court of law. I'm glad he is not a teacher, however, they deserve due process also.

The system has a leak in the investigative process, thank God for the constitution.
