Police in Henrico County are investigating whether or not state delegate Joe Morrissey had inappropriate contact with a minor.

The investigation centers around a call police received last Friday night from a father concerned about his 17-year-old daughter. At the father's request, police went to Morrissey's home to tell the girl her father wanted her home.

The girl said that her mother knew she was at Morrissey's house. Police said the case remains an investigation and that charges have not been filed.

The 55-year-old Morrissey represents the state's 74th district, which includes the cities of Richmond and Hopewell, Charles City County and parts of Henrico and Prince George Counties. Before his election to the House of Delegates, Morrissey was the Henrico County Commonwealth's Attorney from 1989-1993.
