Former Madison police officer now in Dane County Jail on child sex charges

MADISON (WKOW) -- Court records show a former Madison Police officer was booked into the Dane County Jail on Thursday.

In December, Morris A. Reid, 56, was charged stemming from a series of sexual assaults of a 15-year-old girl, which authorities say began in 2009. Reid faces seven felonies in the case.

MPD's Special Victims Unit began investigating Reid in July after a local woman came forward and accused Reid of "a series of crimes" beginning in 2009, police said.

The woman said she was enticed into a years-long sexual relationship with Reid when she was 15.

According to the criminal complaint, the victim's family had a close connection to the South District Police Station.

Court records show Reid will have a preliminary hearing on February 27.
