Missouri sex offender charged in Fulton County sexual assault

Friday, November 11, 2011

Carey Leisenring
A Missouri man who is a registered sex offender has been charged in Fulton Circuit Court with sexually assaulting a 14-year old girl.

Carey John Leisenring of Thayer was charged on Nov. 2 with Sexual Assault in the Fourth Degree.

According to an affidavit filed by Mammoth Spring Police Chief Michael Davis, a 14-year old girl filed a police report alleging that Leisenring pressured her into having sexual intercourse with him on or around Oct. 8, 2010.

The girl and a 17-year old friend both told police that Leisenring took them and another 14-year old to a cabin in Fulton County, where he gave them Mike's Hard Lemonade, a drink containing alcohol, and began sexually touching the juvenile girl who filed the complaint.

The complaintant said she and the other 14-year old went into a bedroom in the cabin. Leisenring entered and told one girl to leave and twice had sex with the remaining 14-year old.

According to the 17-year old, the 14-year old told Leisenring she was 17 and he initially told her to "call him when she was 18," and the day after the alleged assaults, the girl willingly remained with Leisenring.

The alleged victim apparently later had second thoughts, filing her complaint with police on Oct. 24.

During an investigation, Leisenring would not submit to a police interview.

Leisenring was convicted in 2006 of Indecency with a Minor, for sexual contact with a 14-year old girl in Heber Springs. Because he lives in Thayer, Leisenring is registered in that state as a sex offender.

Leisenring is being held in the Fulton County Jail on $50,000 bond.
