Police say they found the teen hiding in Leach’s shower.
“The officers got on scene and he denied that she was in there,” said Capt. Chad Zucco of Greensburg Police.
According to police, the girl told investigators Leach alleged assaulted her multiple times and may have given her a sexually transmitted disease.
“We talked briefly about this new complaint, and the biggest thing for him right now is that he is disputing all of the charges, that it is a misunderstanding and he is telling me that once everything shakes out, once this thing goes to trial, that the truth will come out,” said defense attorney Anthony Bompiani.READ MORE: Shaler And North Allegheny Girls Basketball Teams Take Stand Against Racism
