Teen testifies against alleged molester in Gastonia


GASTONIA, N.C. - A teen is testifying Tuesday against a Gastonia man that he said stalked and molested him and a friend.

James Morgan could spend the rest of his life in prison if he is convicted on numerous sex crimes with 14 and 15-year-old boys.

The teen told jurors that Morgan provided beer, cigarettes, drugs, and then molested him and a friend during a sleep over in 2011.

Morgan's attorney said he was providing financial support for his accusers and the accusations began once he stopped giving them money.

Channel 9 has a camera in the courtroom and will have more information on today's proceedings.
