McMorris allegedly molested the juvenile repeatedly up until August 2009. The victim is now 15-years-old.
As the investigation progressed, prosecutors expanded the case into an array of charges that include everything from molestation to attempted rape.
The indictment alleges McMorris had intercourse with, lewdly fondled, molested and attempted to rape the child "with the intent to arouse or satisfy the sexual desires of the defendant."
