The District Attorney General’s Office issued a statement this week explaining why Roane County Property Assessor David Morgan isn’t being charged with statutory rape for impregnating a 16-year-old when he was 27.
“In this case with the ‘statutory rape’ occurring sometime in 1996, the statute of limitations for prosecution has long expired,” the press release said.
The mother, Melissa Everts, is now 33 years old and living in Illinois.
