Henrico County, VA _ A tentative trial date of December 15 has been set for Del. Joe Morrissey (D-Henrico) in connection with his relationship with a 17-year-old girl who worked as a part-time receptionist at his law office.
Morrissey was arraigned Friday on four felony charges that include distributing and possessing sexually explicit photos of a minor. He pled "not guilty" on all counts.
Morrissey's attorneys also announced plans to formally request the removal of Bill Neely as special prosecutor in the case. Morrissey says Neely has had issues with him in the past.
