Verdict Reached in SJPD Sex Assault Trial | NBC

Brown argued during the trial Morales was instilled with a code of honor and ethics while serving in the Marine Corps and would not jeopardize  his career and reputation. He said there is no evidence to indicate Morales’  decision to stop and search the woman was motivated by sexual desires.     Brown said the search was consensual and that Morales had valid reason to conduct the search because the woman was walking in a high-crime  area and she stared at his patrol car as he drove past her. Morales stopped  to search her because she reached into her sweatshirt pocket, causing him to  suspect she might have been hiding a weapon, Brown said.
