Raymond L. Leach Jr., who in August entered a guilty plea to criminal contempt is facing a new 16-account indictment for his alleged treatment of a local woman and his alleged sexual assault on an inmate at the Genesee County Jail.
Leach, 55, who was the subject of arrest reports in 2012 that listed his home address as both 29 Montclaire Ave., Batavia, and Munson Street in Le Roy, is accused of committing crimes in August (just five days after his conviction in county court) and November, 2012.
The Grand Jury of Genesee County indicted him on five counts of criminal contempt, 1st, a Class E felony, four counts of aggravated criminal contempt, a Class D felony, two counts of harassment, 2nd, a violation, and two counts of aggravated sexual abuse, 1st, a Class B felony.
On Aug. 14, Leach allegedly called a woman and told her, "I will kill you if I find out otherwise." An order of protection had reportedly been issued prior to the call.
The alleged incident accounts for the first four charges in the indictment.
On Aug. 15, Leach allegedly had contact with the same woman, in violation of the order of protection.
On that same day, Leach allegedly either struck, shoved and kicked the woman, or threatened to physically attack her.
The alleged incidents of Aug. 15 account for seven counts of the indictment.
On Nov. 21, Leach allegedly forced a toothbrush up the anus of another inmate, causing physical injury to the person. The inmate was allegedly asleep at the time.
The alleged incident in the jail accounts for five charges on the indictment.
Our first arrest report on Leach was in 2008, when Leach was accused of making a threatening phone call.
