Deidre Pride Said Former Virginia Delegate Joe Morrissey Must Own Up To Underage Sex With Her Teen Sister Myrna
The sister of the teen who bore former Virginia delegate Joe Morrissey’s baby has pleaded for the girl to leave him and come home.
Deidre Pride said 19-year-old Myrna’s relationship with Morrissey, 57 was “disgusting” and has torn her family apart.
“We’re right here seeing it happen, and it’s devastating,” Pride told BOSSIP exclusively from her home in Virginia. “It’s devastating for our family. It’s disgusting.”
Pride, 27, said the family has been estranged from Myrna Pride since Morrissey was charged with several felonies last year for allegedly having sex with the girl, as well as sending nude photos of the teen. Morrissey later took a plea deal where he pled guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a misdemeanor. He served six months in prison.
Parks insisted that the randy pol was having sex with her sister when she was 17 and working for him in his law office. The age of consent in Virginia is 18.
“He’s still gonna lie and say that,” Pride said. “But then why did he take the plea?”
Pride said Morrissey— nicknamed “Fightin’ Joe” for a punch up inside a courtroom— was nothing but “scum” who preyed on her little sister and disgraced them both with their teen sex scandal. She said her sister’s older lover has never owned up to his alleged sex crimes.
“He’s scum,” Pride told BOSSIP. “He’s failed to acknowledge or take responsibility. In his head, we made it up, even though the facts are the facts.”
Morrissey and Myrna Pride appeared at a press conference Thursday, where he said the pair planned to get married and have more kids.
Pride, meanwhile, said she hopes one day her little sister will quit shacking up with Morrissey and come home.
“I love my sister,” Pride said. “I’m devastated. I’m heartbroken. When she comes to her senses, I’m here.”
