Brimfield man arrested for sexual contact with girl, 12

By Dave O'Brien | Staff Writer Published:

A second Brimfield man has been arrested and charged with having sexual contact with a 12-year-old girl in December, in an incident police say is related to alleged, ongoing sexual assaults on the same child by another Brimfield man.

Raymond C. Leasure, 27, of 3610 Duffield Road, was arrested Monday and charged with one count each of gross sexual imposition, a third-degree felony, and failure to report a crime, a fourth-degree misdemeanor.

Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver said Leasure's arrest is related to the case of Dustin T. Hayes, 20, who was arrested Jan. 3 and charged with raping the girl over a three-month span late last year.

Oliver said the alleged rapes occurred at Leasure's residence. At least once on or about Dec. 1, Leasure also allegedly exposed himself to the girl and had sexual contact with her, he said.

Leasure also is charged with failing to report Hayes' alleged crimes even though he knew what was going on between Hayes and the girl, Oliver said. Arraigned Tuesday in Portage County Municipal Court in Ravenna, Leasure was ordered held in the Portage County jail on 10 percent of $100,000 bond. A condition of his bond is no contact with the alleged victim.

Hayes, with a last known address of 1463 Cherrywood Road, was indicted Jan. 11 by a Portage County grand jury on seven counts of rape, all first-degree felonies. He allegedly committed the crimes between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, 2012, according to his indictment. Each charge carries a potential penalty of three to 11 years in prison and sex offender registration.

Leasure also faces trial in Portage County Common Pleas Court in April on charges of receiving stolen property and possessing drug abuse instruments. Brimfield police investigating alleged prostitution at Leasure's residence allegedly found a backpack full of tools, a set of keys and a credit card reported stolen by their owner, as well as hypodermic syringes used to inject drugs, in his possession on Aug. 27, 2012.

  • @ sowhat till you know this mope like do don't try painting her like a rose when all she is a cow poop.if they were to investigate her they would find her to be nothing but total trouble.

  • @anonymous.. That is not the issue!!! I know more than I am letting on, the facts still remain, willingly or not, SHE IS 12!!!!!!!!!!!!! These men know better!!!!! I don't disagree that it was consensual, I don't disagree that she was willing. I don't disagree that she is nothing but trouble. The problem is, SHE IS 12! Not 18 but 12!!! You have a sick perverted mind to think that it makes it ok to "lay" her because she was willing. IT IS NOT!!!! They are grown men!!!!!!!!! God help your child if you have a daughter that is as young as this child and is having sexual relationship with not just one, but two men that are old enough to know better. People like you shouldn't be allowed to procreate! Let's take all the sick perverts and throw them on an island all by themselves, so they can go F themselves and each other. Based on your rationalization Anonymous_2577 that includes you, because it is no excuse and is sick no matter how you try to spin it. EEWWWW

  • read the facts she willfully went to the said house to get laid plain and simple.she was not picked up and forced to have sex.she is nothing but trouble.

  • @SoWhat...couldn't agree with you more!!! Both of theses animals knew exactly how old this girl was...... and as for Patty to suggest that these poor guys just couldn't resist " temptation" is OBSURD!! The girl may look, act, or even claim to be older but I am quite sure these grown men knew exactly how they were taking advantage of her. If in fact she was a so called willing participant has no bearing on the fact that these two adults knew they were breaking the law .... there is NO EXCUSE what so ever for a 20 year old and a 27 year old to participate in this type of conduct with a CHILD. These types of preditors need removed from our neighborhoods....I certainly wouldn't want them near my beautiful 12 year old!!!!!

  • @Patty I don't believe that being promiscuous is the issue here, it is how you react to it. Yes that is a problem for this girl's parents. I have seen her facebook as well, and she is no saint. I also have heard that at least one of her parents knew she has been sexually active. All of which are her parent's issues that they need to deal with. As far as the men handling temptation.. that is all on them. SHE IS 12!!! Temptation or not, they should have NEVER touched her! What kind of reasoning is that? You can't justify what they did because she came onto them. She is a child! As grown adults they should have been able to say "NO". If not then cut off their "junk" and then they won't ever have to worry about ti again. I am appalled to think that anyone would think that it was ok and that the judge should have pity on grown men because she looks, says and acts older. Bottom line is, they both knew how old she was.

  • i cant believe that a little girl would put herself and anyone else into a dangerous position! shame on all of you involved. parents teach your children or dont have them. At 12 you should no right from wrong. those men had no right to touch her, but if she is permiscuous the parents should let the courts know. some men cant handle temptation

  • What has the mother been doing all this time? you can not say she didn't know what was going on.This is a spoiled brat who lies all the time and gets people to back her lies.With those pictures always trying to look older and even saying she is older and even some of her posts on facebook that she has now deleted since she did admit she willingly took part in all of this.something needs done with this brat before she drags down more people with her lying.

  • I blame the parents for a lot of this girls issues. My daughter would not be posting pictures of herself the way she does on facebook. What the guys did is not right, by all means, but they are not the only ones at fault here.

  • This girl is going to be bringing down quite a few in the township before long. From what I hear, she is a very willing partner and by no means does she look 12. With that being said, it still doesn't make it right. These guys should have their heads examined and their "member" cut off, regardless of whether or not she consented, she is 12!!!!!! They are **** lucky that wasn't my 12 year old daughter. Being in prison would be the least of their worries.

  • They both must be euthanized if proven guilty. Society should never tolerate this type of crime against any child.
