Previously, he worked as an undercover agent for 18 months. Cases that involve children strike a chord with him because of his past.

He was taken under the wing of a local youth center coordinator, Carl Buford. Buford acted as a surrogate father to Morgan and helped Morgan obtain a college football scholarship, but also sexually abused him.
Derek is very much a flirt and likes to have a good time. Most of what he puts off is a front to hide what he really feels inside. He flips houses on the side, tearing them down and building them back up.
