An Arkansas man today surrendered on a Bossier Parish arrest warrant charging him with failure
to register as a sex offender.     

Frances “Frank” Morgan, 65,  turned himself into the Bossier Maximum Security Facility in Plain Dealing this morning around 10:30 a.m.

Morgan, whose current address is listed in Cove, Ark., is charged with one count of Failure to Register and Notify as a Sex Offender with a bond of $75,000.  Allegedly, Morgan has failed to register as a sex offender while living at several residences in Bossier and possibly Caddo
Parishes over the past decade.

The Bossier Sheriff Office obtained an arrest warrant Wednesday for a Bossier City man currently living in Arkansas for failing to register as a sex offender for more than a decade while living at various residences in Bossier Parish and possibly Caddo Parish.

Morgan initially was charged with 12 counts of Indecent Behavior with Juveniles in 1995 for inappropriate sexual contact with 12 girls in Rapides Parish over period of five years.  A year later, he plead guilty to three counts of the same charge and ordered to register as a sex offender for 10 years. 

He resided in various locations, including Bienville Parish and St. Helena Parish and complied with sex offender registration for the first five years.  However, he last registered as a sex offender
with an address in Ringgold in 2001 and never completed the 10-year sex offender registration requirement. 

Earlier this month, Polk County Sheriff’s Office in Mena, Ark., contacted the Bossier Sheriff’s Office stating they made contact with Morgan and discovered he had failed to register as a sex offender.  He was arrested and charged with failure to register as a sex offender in their jurisdiction and a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.  On Oct. 16, he pled guilty on those charges and received a sentence of five years supervised probation. 

Bossier investigators then learned that Morgan had resided in various locations in Bossier Parish from 2002 to 2013, including Benton Road, Cattleman’s Trail and possibly Fairfield Ave. in Shreveport. 

He is believed to have moved to Arkansas in early 2013.  Neither law enforcement agency has a record that Morgan ever registered as a sex offender during that time. That’s when Bossier Sheriff’s Office obtained a warrant for the arrest of Morgan with a bond amount of $75,000.
