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.
