David Leonard gets 20 years

Man gets 20 years in prison for sexual assaulting MySpace members:

David Leonard, the sex offender from Connecticut with at least a dozen arrests…no, not that one, the other one…has been sentenced to only 20 years behind bars. He pleaded no contest to multiple sexual assault charges.

The article states that he’s expected to enter other pleas for other charges. Hopefully he’ll receive more sentences because 20 years for everything he’s done is a joke.

Speaking of jokes look what his lawyer had to say.

Leonard’s lawyer, special public defender Jeffrey C. Kestenband, said he “grudgingly” endorsed the plea bargain. He said Leonard is a considerate and intelligent person who is committed to addressing his problems.

I wonder if he said that with a straight face.

David Leonard charged once again

Sex-Assault Suspect Faces More Charges:

David Leonard is one of the few recurring characters here. You can check out his previous transgressions here, here, and here. This scumbag has had so many charges of child molestation leveled against him I’ve lost track if this is a new charge or not. I believe it is but don’t quote me on that.

VERNON — A local man in custody the past year on charges that he had sex with several underage girls he met on the social networking website MySpace.com has been charged with having sex with a 15-year-old Plymouth girl.

David F. Leonard, 23, of Vernon, was charged Tuesday by state police with two counts of second-degree sexual assault and two counts of impairing the morals of a minor. During his brief arraignment before Judge Patricia L. Harleston, his bail was set at $75,000 and the case was continued to July 13. Leonard is being held, with bail totaling $715,300.

In the new case,

Well, that clears that up.

the 15-year-old girl told state police that she met Leonard through another website, FaceTheJury.com. Leonard had sex with the girl on several occasions – at her Plymouth home, his dormitory room at Central Connecticut State University and his brother’s dormitory room at the University of Connecticut, police said. The arrest warrant served Tuesday is for the incidents that allegedly occurred in Leonard’s brother’s dorm room at UConn in Storrs.

Police found the Plymouth girl after executing a search warrant on Leonard’s computer and finding images of the girl in various states of undress. The girl had sent the photos to Leonard via America Online’s instant messaging service.

Police also found five photographs of Leonard’s penis that they say he sent to the girl via instant messaging.

I want to say that this is the 11th or 12th charge against him. And as far as I know all of his acts took place in the state of Connecticut. The same state where Attorney General Richard Blumenthal has pressured MySpace into implementing all sorts of impossible age verification checks. I guess when Leonard gets sentenced it will be a litmus test to see how Mr. Blumenthal really handles child molesters.

Thanks to Debbie for the tip.

David Leonard arrested again, and again, and again

Vernon man charged again with MySpace sex assault:

David Leonard, our favorite Connecticut child molester, has been arrested AGAIN!!! You can check out just some of his earlier exploits here and here.

NEW BRITAIN – A Vernon man was served with an arrest warrant Monday morning for another sexual-assault charge stemming from his use of the profile Web site MySpace.com

The man, David Leonard, 22, was charged with second-degree sexual assault, risk of injury to a minor, employing a minor in an obscene gesture, promoting a minor in an obscene performance, and enticing a minor, according to the New Britain Herald.

The incident took place in 2004 in New Britain, and involved a 14-year-old girl, New Britain police Sgt. Gregory Wright said.

Leonard, a former Central Connecticut State University student, was first arrested on Jan. 30 on charges of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old Vernon girl he met through MySpace.

Leonard was arrested a second time and accused of fondling a 12-year-old Newington girl and her friend of the same age in a wooded area.

Leonard was arrested a third time on June 16, accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in New Britain, and was arrested for the fourth time in early August and charged with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in Wethersfield.

In October, a Superior Court judge signed a fifth arrest warrant against Leonard.

After the last arrest in October, Assistant State’s Attorney Louis Luba told the Herald that police are expecting to arrest Leonard again on allegations of sexual assault against minors in Torrington and Vernon.

Leonard also was arrested recently on a warrant out of Litchfield County, Luba told The Herald.

Luba added that this would bring the total number of suspected cases to around 10.

In addition to the sexual assault charges, Leonard has pending charges for carrying a weapon in a motor vehicle, failure to appear, and resisting arrest after police said he tried to run away from them when they came to his house in January.

How many times does a child molester have to be arrested before they stop arresting him and just put him in jail?

David Leonard arrested again

Leonard arrested on sexual assault charges:

It seems our favorite Conn. College Creeper is at it again. Dave Leonard has been arrested once more…

NEW BRITAIN – The rap sheet on 22-year-old David Leonard continues to expand as he was arrested on additional charges over the weekend after investigations revealed he may have committed illegal sexual acts with a pair of females in New Britain.

Leonard, who is listed as living with his parents in Vernon, was arrested Friday morning on charges of two counts of second-degree sexual assault, two counts of illegal sexual contact, employing a minor in an obscene performance and promoting a minor in an obscene performance.

This is the second time Leonard, who was arrested in May on charges of possession of a weapon in a motor vehicle, has been in trouble with New Britain police and the third time he has been arrested for sexual contact with a minor in the past year.

Leonard is already facing charges of second-degree sexual assault on a minor in Tolland Superior Court for an incident that occurred in the Vernon area last fall and has been arraigned on charges of third-degree sexual assault and resisting arrest for an alleged encounter with two 12-year-old female victims in Newington.

Details on the latest arrest were unavailable through the police department on Sunday afternoon. Leonard was detained over the weekend and the amount of bond withheld from arrest reports.

You would think that since he’s been busted twice for it he wouldn’t have tried it a 3rd time. That’s what you get for thinking. I hope this gets him sent away for an awfully long time.

His MySpace has been removed and if he has a new one I can’t find it.

H/T to Deb.

Cops Catch Conn. College Creeper

CCSU student held in MySpace case :

Is Conn. like the MySpace predator breeding ground?

A Central Connecticut State University student was arrested Tuesday morning after police said they discovered he had made contact with a 12-year-old Newington girl on MySpace and used the connection to set up a sexual encounter with the girl and a 12-year-old friend. David Leonard of New Britain, was arrested by the Newington detectives at his home on charges of third-degree sexual assault and resisting arrest.

Lt. Stephen Clark of the Newington Police Department said detectives first began investigating the incident after they received information from a Department of Children and Families worker about the victim’s encounter with Leonard.

Police said the relationship first began in summer 2005 when one of the victims used her sister’s screen name and began corresponding with Leonard using the popular Internet profile and chat program, myspace.com. The relationship eventually led to phone conversations via cell phone and eventually he established a meeting time with the two girls, police said.

According to the incident reports, Leonard proceeded to meet the girls at a local school and the three went into a wooded area together. Once they were in the area, Leonard proceeded to kiss and fondle both victims.

Assistant State’s Attorney Louis Luba Jr. said that during investigations, Leonard indicated to police that he had believed the girls were actually 14 years old, stating that he was unaware of their actual age.

This is the second time Leonard has been in trouble for possible involvement with a minor. He was scheduled to face charges of second-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor for what is believed to be a similar case in Tolland Superior Court today, but the case was continued until April 19 because of Tuesday’s arrest.

Several facts stated in Leonard’s MySpace profile indicate that he has had several other established Internet relationships with females under the age of 18 as well. His site, which was last accessed by the user on Monday, contains a list of 17 friends, of which nearly a dozen are females registered as under the age of 18.

In his profile, Leonard admits to being a CCSU student from New Britain, but claims to be only 18 years old himself. His actual age is 22.

So telling the cops you thought they were 14 makes it right? For someone so dumb how did you get into college?

And Mr. A brings us Davey’s MySpace profile. Noting is funnier than reading the comments of a MySpace pedophile when his friends find out that he’s been busted.
