HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – There is new information in the investigation into Del. Joe Morrissey‘s relationship with a teenager.

Previously, the girl’s attorney went on record saying nothing happened between her client and the lawmaker after police found the teenager at Morrissey’s home back in august.

The attorney also admitted the two met because the girl falsified her age and qualifications on a resume to get a job at Morrissey’s lawfirm.

The attorneys now allege police suggested the mother and daughter could profit from suing Morrissey if “the truth comes out.”

CBS 6 News reached out to police for a response to the allegations, but they declined comment.

Attorneys for Morrissey and the teen said they have recorded conversations that prove that police tried to intimidate the girl into changing her story.

    henrico has become a joke.The whole county,schools,police etc is failing and why?well we know the school boards issues,we know we have a fairly new attorney in charge and we know the guy that use to hold it together(hazel) is gone.interesting.With all the crime recently from thug robberies to the failing schools Henrico could find better things to do.

  • Henrico has a great, new county manager. I can’t answer for the rest of that. But just because Hazelett is gone, doesn’t mean the new county manager isn’t doing the best job he can.
