The Teen’s Boss Accused Her of Stealing at Dollar Tree. He Wanted to ‘Frisk’ Her.

Christopher Morris, 41, Sexual battery - misdemeanorA Dollar Tree manager touched a teenage cashier’s breasts and buttocks after accusing her of theft at the Martinez store, leading to his arrest for sexual battery, authorities said.

Christopher Marcellus Morris, 41, was arrested last Wednesday after the cashier complained to law enforcement about the alleged sexual battery.

The 17-year-old female cashier told deputies last month that she was approached by the manager and brought into the back room of the store, according to a sheriff’s report.

“Chris accused her of theft and told her that he needed to search her,” a report says. “Chris then began touching her legs, inner thigh, buttocks, stomach and breasts using the front of his hands.”

The teen told deputies that she wanted to prosecute her boss, and she filled out a written statement. That led to Morris’ arrest on the misdemeanor charge.

Morris, who resides in Hephzibah, could not be reached for comment.  A person answering the phone Tuesday at the Washington Road store said Morris was no longer employed there.

Oddly enough, Christopher Marcellus Morris was accused of rape in 2010 in Richmond County and was convicted of a lesser charge of false imprisonment, according to court records. He was sentenced under a First Offender Status to five years of probation.

    “Ban the box” initiatives and other measures to limit employers’ ability to screen out the scum and predators are on the rise. Your politicians are making your workplaces dangerous. Obama’s bs regs that made no felony policies a discriminatory act (Trump has done nothing about it… maybe he can tweet soon, though) Eventually, every low wage employer will be filled to the max with those that should be in maximum security lockup. It’s already high enough. Low wage employers turn to criminals first.. What other choice do they have? A probation officer and an ebt card is all you need to be a manager at a dollar tree.
