*Disclaimer: this story may be hard for some to read. It describes, in very few details, numerous sexual assaults of juveniles.*

09 January 2024- Court filings from Pennsylvania State Police seem to expose a series of sexual assaults against a number of prepubescent girls in Guilford Township by a 54 year old man. Morris Franklin Gibson, Jr is behind bars on $500,000 bail after being charged with four felony counts of rape of a child, four felony counts of felony statutory sexual assault, four felony counts of IDSI with a child, nine felony counts of corruption of minors, four felony counts of child endangerment, five felony counts of indecent exposure, and two felony counts of indecent assault of a person less than 13.

On September 14th of 2023, Pennsylvania State Police Troopers in Chambersburg were initially made aware of a series of sexual assaults against a six year old girl in graphic detail. These assaults reportedly took place between the dates of January 1, 2021 and September 18th, 2023 at a home on Ivan Road, Guilford Township.

A number of the alleged victims were interviewed by PSP in the company of child victim advocates. During the first interview, the six year old victim allegedly that her three juvenile sisters lived with her at the previously mentioned home along with Morris Gibson and the children’s mother. This victim detailed a number of assaults allegedly against her and her sisters during this time by Gibson.

A four year old victim was interviewed afterwards, with police saying that Gibson was again confirmed to have lived with her and her sisters. This victim also reportedly described in detail the sexual assaults against her by Gibson.

Finally, police interviewed a 7 year old victim, described as a Victim 5. During his interview, the boy allegedly said that Gibson and his mother would “lay on top of each other” without any clothes on as well as detailed what happened during those episodes. While this was happening on the couch, the victim allegedly told police that five children could be found playing on the carpet in the living room at the same time. Police say this was brought up in the interview multiple times.

While Gibson has been arrested and charged with the previously mentioned crimes, the victims’ mother has not, to our knowledge, been charged. A search of surrounding dates to Gibson’s arrest as well as relevant PSP incident numbers do not show an additional arrest in this case.

Morris Gibson is behind bars on $500,000 bail. His preliminary hearing is set for January 9th.
