Pa. convicted sex offender faces multiple charges in sex-slave plot

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- A convicted sex offender was charged with planning to kidnap a woman so he could make her a sex slave, state police said.
Stephen T. Morgan, 63, of Pittsburgh, was arrested Sunday morning at the Monroeville interchange of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, where he was about to travel to Philadelphia to get the woman, police said.
Morgan planned to train her as a "sexual slave for his anticipated prostitution business," by withholding food and water, having her raped and giving her drugs such as heroin and cocaine, police said.
Police did not provide information on the woman or how Morgan knew of her.
He was charged with attempted kidnapping and solicitation of kidnapping, rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and unauthorized administration of an intoxicant. He was being held at the Allegheny County Jail and it was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney. He has a nonpublished telephone number.
Morgan is listed as a sex offender on the state's Megan's Law Web site for a 1993 aggravated indecent assault conviction.
Neighbors were unaware of Morgan's record, but described him as being odd.
Waynette Williams, 35, said she often saw him outside wearing only shorts and had caught him looking into her back kitchen door from a porch and watching her three children in her back yard over a fence.
