PHILADELPHIA - A Philadelphia man is back behind bars after authorities say he raped a teenage girl while he was out on bail for allegedly beating a man two years ago in Queen Village.
Herbert Morrison turned himself in last Friday for the alleged sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl whom investigators say he met on Instagram.
Court documents show the sexual assault happened a month after the pair met while Morrison was out on bail for beating 40-year-old Zach Lean so severely he was in monthlong coma."One of them punched him in the head, knocked him to the ground, he hit his head on the curb and started having a seizure," said his Zach's wife Christine. RELATED COVERAGEMorrison, with the help of the Philadelphia Community Bail Fund, posted 10% of his $75k bail which released him back out into the public in August 2021.
When reached for comment, the Philadelphia Community Bail Fund shared the following statement: The mission of the Philadelphia Community Bail Fund is to end cash bail and pretrial detention in our city.
