A 33-year-old man is accused of forcing a female to perform sex acts in the Conway area during a three-year period.

The Horry County Police Department arrested Jason Eugene Morrison on Wednesday and charged him with human trafficking, according to a news release.

The U.S. Marshals Service assisted with the arrest.

Morrison purportedly forced the victim to “engage in sexual acts for his own profit or benefit” between 2014 and 2017, the release said.

The incidents are alleged to have happened at a home on Holly Lane.

An arrest warrant said males who came to the home would negotiate a set price with Morrison, who allegedly forced the victim to have sex with them.

The defendant would receive money prior to the sex acts being performed, the warrant said.

The victim was rarely compensated, according to the warrant, and when she was, it was in the form of crack cocaine.

“On several occasions [Morrison] made her have sex with others to pay off his own debts, where she would not receive anything of value in return,” the warrant said.

The victim said Morrison acted as her “pimp” and that he would sometimes deny her food and barred her from leaving the house unsupervised.

Morrison remained incarcerated at J. Reuben Long Detention Center at the time of this report.
