Judge Sentences Fire Fighter to 60 Days, Barber Duty for Molestation

February 19, 2006 - Posted at 12:42 p.m. CST

ST. LOUIS (AP) _ A former St. Louis firefighter has been

sentenced to 60 days in jail and must cut homeless men's hair after

being convicted of molesting a teenage boy.

St. Louis Circuit Judge Michael Calvin also sentenced

41-year-old Reginald Morris to five years probation. He faces up to

15 years in prison if he violates the terms of his probation.

The victim says Morris molested him in 2002 and 2003 when he was

13 and 14. Authorities say the abuse was not related to Morris' job

with the fire department.

Morris had worked in the past as a barber, so the judge ordered

him to 750 hours community service giving haircuts to adult men at

a homeless shelter.

Morris has a history, pleading guilty in 1994 to misdemeanor

sexual abuse for fondling a 13-year-old boy.
