The State of Utah filed criminal charges against the 47-year-old on Wednesday, Nov. 3, in Sanpete County where the crimes were allegedly committed in 1992. Leisek is facing two counts of first-degree rape of a child, documents obtained by KOIN 6 News revealed.
According to court documents, Leisek allegedly forced himself onto the child, who was between the age of 9 and 10, on two different occasions. Court documents state it happened on or between Oct. 1, 1992, and Nov. 1, 1992, and on or between Jan. 1, 1992, and Dec. 31, 1992.
