Man Sentenced to 60 Years for Child Rape & Child Molestation


TACOMA, WA – Today, Shawn Morgan was sentenced to 60 years to life in prison for sex crimes with multiple child victims. After deliberating for less than a day last December, a jury found Morgan, 45, guilty of five counts of rape of a child in the first degree and five counts of child molestation in the first degree.

Erica Eggertsen and Lori Kooiman represented the state at trial.

“Nothing is more important than protecting our children,” said Prosecutor Mark Lindquist.

On November 24, 2015, while at a rehabilitation facility, Kierra Hall, 27, told her counselor that she and Morgan sexually assaulted Morgan's son. Hall said Morgan also had child pornography in his trailer. Hall believed the children in the pornography appeared to be between two and thirteen-years-old.

Including Morgan’s son, there were three victims in this case.

In September of last year, Hall pleaded guilty to three counts of rape of a child in the first degree and one count of child molestation in the first degree. She is expected to be sentenced next month.
