BESSEMER – An Ironwood man will serve over 6 years in prison on a criminal sexual conduct charge after being sentenced in Gogebic County Circuit Court Monday. 28 year old Tylor David Morrison, was sentenced to serve between 75 months and 15 years in prison for third degree criminal sexual conduct. The charge stems from the night of Oct. 13, 2017, when Morrison drove a woman he knew to a relatively secluded area of the county and assaulted her, according to court documents.Morrison pleaded no contest to the third degree criminal sexual conduct charge in June as part of the plea agreement. A no-contest plea is treated as a guilty plea but isn’t considered an admission of guilt in the lawsuit. The plea agreement called for three counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct be dismissed at Monday’s sentencing and required the minimum sentence fall within the Michigan Department of Correction’s sentencing guidelines of 45-75 months in the case. Morrison received a jail credit of 278 days for time served prior to sentencing. Along with his prison sentence, Pope said Morrison will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. He was also ordered to pay various fines and court costs.
