IRONTON -- A former Marshall University math instructor was sentenced to six years in prison last week for attempted rape, according to Lawrence County Prosecutor-Elect Brigham Anderson.

William M. Morrison, 37, of Private Drive 2482, South Point, was sentenced in the case by Lawrence County Common Pleas Judge Charles "Chuck" Cooper. He was indicted earlier this year on a charge of rape of a 13-year-old girl earlier this year in Lawrence County. He pleaded guilty earlier to an amended charge of attempted rape.
