Delaware MD Convicted of Waterboarding a Child

In the city of Georgetown a physician was found guilty this week of water-torturing the daughter of his girlfriend by holding her head under a faucet.

Doctor Melvin Morse, age 60 was charged with three felonies but convicted of one: waterboarding a 10-year old girl in a bathtub. He was also found guilty of five lesser but similar assaults.

Pauline Morse, mother of the girl, agreed to plead guilty last year to child endangerment and testified against the doctor. She described Morse as “brutal and domineering” abusing the girl for years while her mother acquiesced in silence. Pauline Morse, 41, said she chose to ignore the abuse and was afraid of “undermining” Melvin Morse.

Morse, who is appallingly a pediatrician, could receive a 10-year prison term when sentenced in April.

Case Update:

April 11, 2014

Superior Court Judge Richard F. Stokes gave Doctor Melvin Morse a five-year sentence Friday morning, for a count of first-degree Reckless Endangerment of a child.

The judge ordered that the errant physician could be released on probation after three years in state custody. Stokes handed down five other one-year sentences but suspended them for probation time to be served concurrently with Morse’s two years on probation.

Morse was led from the courtroom in handcuffs.
