Virginia Del. Joseph Morrissey (D.) was indicted Monday for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl.
In an attempt to defend himself following his Tuesday court appearance, Morrissey began to read texts from the alleged victim, some of which contained graphic language.
Court documents say that Morrissey, 56, had sex several times with the teen at his law office in August 2013. The two had sent a series of text messages to their friends detailing the encounters. The morning after one tryst Morrissey texted the teen and asked for a nude photo to help him “fantasize about their next encounter,” according to prosecutors.
