A Maine woman and her boyfriend have been arrested for the sexual assault of a developmentally disabled 14-year-old relative.
According to police, 34-year-old Holly Morrison allowed her boyfriend, 59-year-old Donald Cass, to sexually assault the girl at least three times last fall.
Morrison has been charged with three counts of gross sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child. She was released on $500 bail and will face a judge on June 5. She has been prohibited from having contact with both Cass and the victim.
Cass has already been pleaded guilty to two counts of gross sexual assault and sentenced to serve four to eight years in prison followed by four years of probation. It’s unclear why Morrison was arrested so long after Cass was already sentenced.
The victim reportedly notified a Department of Health and Human Services worker that she had been sexually assaulted and the woman then alerted the police.
According to the detective, Morrison says she met Cass at a “swingers” party. Cass, a former reserve police officer, is married and reportedly told his wife that he was going fishing every weekend while he and Morrison would attend swingers events.
While this was going on, the victim says that Morrison repeatedly insisted that the girl get in bed with the couple. The victim also says she was forced to shower with the couple and was sexually assaulted with objects.
According to police, Morrison reportedly said “she did not approve of Donald Cass’ behavior, but she said at some point he had convinced her that this behavior was normal.”
