A police officer was arrested Friday amid allegations that he had an inappropriate relationship with a teenager and possessed “inappropriate photographs,” the Fall River Police Department said in a statement.
Officer Michael Morin was arrested by members of the department’s major crimes division, the statement said.
He had been on paid administrative leave since May 29 after the department “discovered that he was not only engaged in an inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old juvenile, but he had received and was in possession of inappropriate photographs in violation of the law,” the statement said.
