The Louisa County Sheriff’s Office and Child Protective Services received a complaint of the sexual assault of a child in Louisa County this week.

A ten-year-old female and her mother, who reside in another county, reported that a family acquaintance, Joe Callis Leake, had offered to take the victim shopping, but instead took her to his residence in Louisa County.  Once at his residence, the victim alleges a number of crimes occurred.

Based on the initial investigation, Leake was arrested on March 13 for one count of abduction, object sexual penetration, aggravated sexual battery, indecent liberties by custodian and forcible sodomy.

Leake is being held without bond at Central Virginia Regional Jail and his case has been transferred from the Louisa County District Court to the Louisa Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.
