comment Is there a motion sensor light switch that does not need ground?
Your license should be revoked, and you should be thrown out of school. By using the grounding conductor as a "neutral", you've made the grounding conductor a current carrying conductor. There's now current flowing through all the metal objects that the conductor is in contact with, including boxes, frames, etc.

comment Odd receptacle wiring
I don't think I'd jump to the conclusion that one of the red or black wires must be "neutral". The black and white could be "hot" and "neutral" feeding the receptacle, and the other black and red could be a switch loop to make a half switched receptacle. There's not really enough information provided by the OP, to provide such a confident answer.
