Man charged with sex abuse after threatening to rape woman

{{featured_button_text}}

A Taylor Ridge, Illinois, man with a criminal history in Rock Island County and who was recently sentenced to a term on probation for a battery conviction is now facing a sex abuse charge in Scott County.

Lloyd Brandon Morrison, 39, is charged with one count of third-degree sexual abuse. The charge is a Class C felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of 10 years.

According to the arrest affidavit filed by Davenport Police Officer Robert Welch, on Monday at 1:38 p.m., Morrison was at the Walgreens at 1805 Brady St. when he approached a woman, grabbed her groin and told her he was going to rape her. Morrison does not know the victim.

A preliminary hearing on the case is scheduled for Nov. 13 in Scott County District Court.

On Oct. 20, during a hearing in Rock Island County Circuit Court, Morrison was sentenced to 18 months on probation after pleading guilty to a charge of battery causing bodily harm. The charge is a Class A misdemeanor for which he could have received a sentence of up to one year in the Rock Island County Jail. A charge of domestic battery causing bodily harm was dismissed in accordance with the plea.

On Oct. 25, 2018, during a hearing in Rock Island County Circuit Court, Morrison was sentenced to two years in the Illinois Department of Corrections after pleading guilty to a Class 3 felony charge of threatening a public official. That charge carries a prison sentence of two to five years.

Morrison also has convictions in Rock Island County for criminal damage to property, drug possession, criminal trespass, resisting a peace officer, driving under the influence and aggravated assault on a peace officer.

Morrison was being held Thursday night in the Scott County Jail on a $10,000 cash-only bond.
