A DC Superior Court judge sentenced a defendant for sexually assaulting three young girls at the Gallery Place-Chinatown metro station.
“Twelve girls in the District have been victimized by [the defendant],” the prosecutor said during the March 9 sentencing.
According to court documents, Olah Morgan approached three girls less than 15-years-old, exposing himself and making obscene comments and gestures. He reportedly made forcible sexual contact with the victims, who were able to escape him by hopping on a train and notifying police at the Pentagon City metro station.
Morgan, now 29, was initially charged with three counts of second-degree child sex abuse. After coming to an agreement with prosecutors, the defendant pleaded out on one count of second-degree child sex abuse, one count of misdemeanor sex abuse of a child or minor and two counts of misdemeanor sex abuse.
DC Superior Court Judge Juliet McKenna imposed a 42-month sentence for the second-degree child sex abuse charge and a 180-day sentence for the other charges. The sentences will run consecutively.
Morgan did not make any statements during the sentencing.
As a result of these convictions, the defendant will be required to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his lifetime. His probation was also revoked in a 2017 case in which he was convicted of simple assault and indecent sexual proposal of a minor.Notifications are not yet available for this specific case.
