A sobbing sex offender was immediately taken into custody Monday after apologizing to his teen victim and his own family.

Kevin Christopher Leonard, 43, of Park Rapids, received 180 days in jail for sexually assaulting the teen three times in 2011. He pled guilty June 18 to a single count of Third Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct in exchange for the county dismissing two similar counts.


His attorney, Tom Kuesel, told Judge John Smith Leonard was at a low risk to re-offend.
