The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office says a man at the center of an international child sex investigation is being held in Montgomery on a felony voting fraud charge out of Okaloosa County.
Fifty-eight year old George Morris, of Eclectic, Alabama, and formerly of Okaloosa County, is charged with false swearing of voter information.
Investigators say he registered as a qualified voter in Okaloosa County in 1999 and cast a ballot in November 2002, a violation of Florida election laws.
Federal authorities say the arrest means Morris will remain in detention in the Montgomery City Jail where he’s also charged with immigration fraud.
Morris is at the center of an international probe involving allegations he took part in unlawful sex with hundreds of minor females between the ages of eleven and fifteen in other countries, including Vietnam, Thailand and Mexico.
Law enforcement officials believe Morris poses a danger to the community and is a flight risk.
