Washington Supreme Court ends legal turf battle in Stevens County

Accused child rapist in Spokane jail, likely to face federal charges

COLVILLE – Investigators say they have video evidence that a Nine Mile Falls physician accused of drugging and raping a 13-year old boy last weekend has victimized other minors. Dr. Craig Morgenstern, an emergency room doctor at the Spokane Veterans Affairs Medical Center, was arrested Wednesday for the second time this week. The new child pornography case stems from a video found in a desktop computer recovered from Morgenstern’s home by detectives. The video shows Morgenstern performing sex acts on the same victim in the alleged child rape that brought deputies to Morgenstern’s home on Saturday, authorities said. The video was created in Hayden, Idaho, at Triple Play Family Fun Park, said deputy prosecuting attorney Lech Radzimski.
