Democratic Virginia state delegate Joseph Morrissey, who reached a plea agreement for charges relating to a sexual relationship he had with his 17-year-old office assistant, is yet to decide whether he will resign or commute to work from jail.

The 57-year-old Democratic representative for Henrico county was sentenced to 12 months in jail with 6 months suspended for charges of “contributing to the delinquency of a minor,” according to a report in the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Morrissey’s lawyers say that he will be allowed to continue his work in the general assembly and his private law practice as part of a work-release program. He will drive his own car to work and authorities will monitor him through a device that will remain secured to his ankle, according to his lawyers.

The special prosecutor assigned to the case also revealed on Friday that the girl is now pregnant, and that the child is “perhaps” Morrissey’s.

However, Morrissey maintains that the allegations are false and that the evidence against him, such as naked pictures and explicit text messages, was planted by a jealous friend of the girl that hacked Morrissey’s cell phone.

I thought convicted criminals weren't allowed to hold an elective office.  Shouldn't he be forced to resign?  

He should be and they should have another election to fill his place. That's what I think but I really don't know how it works.

No, if your a Democrat it doesn't matter what the crime or perversion, the law doesn't pertain to them.

LET HIM GO TO NO WORK IN GOVERNMENT AND  RETURN EVERY NIGHT WITH ALL THE OTHER DEMOCRATS NOT YET CONVICTED. THOSE DIRTY DISGUSTING DEMOCRATS. WHY CAN'T THEY BE LIKE THE TEA PARTY AND THE TEA PARTY HAS BABIES. DEMOCRATS HAVE NO BABIES.

Isn't the point of jailed to be "confined", not just using it as a motel?

The real meaning of "work release."  

He's the ultimate liberal... taxpayer funded job.  Taxpayer funded room & board (jail).  Sex with a minor, surprisingly it's not a boy!  These people have no morals.  

Special laws for special people! Sounds like a balanced judicial system... NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How is it that a 'plea agreement' was even considered?

So if you're a State delegate....you get to arrange your sentence?

But, if not a State delegate....and just a sexual pervert going after under-age females...you go to jail?

Where is the outrage from the VA people?  Or, did I miss it?

Obama is looking out for his friends.

We can rest assured this won't make the news.

what a piece of poop.  he wants to suck up the money keep his job assaulting kids at Virginia's expense

Almost as bad as Bullhead City AZ.  police sergeant kept his job at full pay from  October until last week while being investigated for serial RAPE. resigned the day the internal investigation was completed

CRIME!! -> ICE Deports Quarter Of A Million Illegal Aliens, 6K Gang Members In 2018

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency in Fiscal Year 2018 deported more than 256,000 illegal aliens out of the United States, including about 6,000 suspected or known gang members.

Between September 2017 and October 2018, ICE agents deported 95,360 illegal aliens living throughout the interior of the U.S. and 160,725 illegal aliens who were caught by Border Patrol crossing into the country.

Most significant are the number of deportations ICE agents conducted for the more than 95,000 illegal aliens who were living throughout the interior of the country. There are anywhere from 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living across the U.S. at any given time, straining the capacity of ICE.

This year, though, ICE increased deportations of illegal aliens living in the U.S. by more than 45 percent since President Obama’s last year in office, when only about 65,000 illegal aliens living in the U.S. were deported.

The number of ICE deportations of convicted criminal illegal aliens and those with pending criminal charges has increased about 11.5 percent since Fiscal Year 2016, with more than 168,000 convicted criminal and suspected criminal illegal aliens being deported out of the U.S. this year.

In a tremendous increase, ICE hiked the number of illegal alien gang members deported by more than 185 percent compared to Fiscal Year 2016. This year, nearly 6,000 illegal aliens who are known or suspected gang members were deported out of the U.S. by ICE. Compare that to the only about 2,000 illegal alien gang members were deported in Obama’s last year in office.

Likewise, ICE deported a steady level of suspected or known illegal alien terrorists, totaling about 42 deportations for Fiscal Year 2018, a slight decrease from the 45 who were deported last year.

The ICE data also reveals the effectiveness of Trump’s visa sanctions on foreign countries refusing to take back their nationals. Throughout this year, the Trump administration placed visa restrictions on Cambodia, Cuba, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, as all those nations would not take their nationals back from the U.S.

This Fiscal Year 2018, after all five nations were hit with visa sanctions, the number of nationals deported to the foreign countries skyrocketed with a 279 percent increase in deportations from the U.S. to Cambodia, a 189 percent increase in deportations to Cuba, and a nearly 150 percent increase in deportations to Guinea.

As Breitbart News most recently reported, illegal immigration to the U.S. has continuously risen over the last three months to record levels. Last month, illegal immigration at the United States-Mexico border soared to levels that the country has not seen since Fiscal Year 2014, when more than 51,500 illegal aliens tried to cross the border in April 2015.

Meanwhile, illegal immigration costs American taxpayers about $116 billion every year, and the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens — granted birthright citizenship — cost taxpayers about $2.4 billion annually. There are about 300,000 “anchor babies,” the common name for U.S.-born child of illegal aliens, born every year which exceeds U.S. births in 48 states.
