A Chanceford Township man plied a 14-year-old girl with Vicodin and alcohol before sexually assaulting her, state police allege.

Ronald Brian Leese Jr. then repeatedly urged the girl not to tell anyone, calling the molestation "our little secret," charging documents allege.

Leese, 33, of 10304 Kohler Road, remains in York County Prison, charged with statutory sexual assault, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor, corruption of a minor, indecent assault and furnishing alcohol to a minor.

He also is being held on a county probation violation, according to prison records.

Leese was arraigned Thursday on the charges by District Judge Scott Laird, who set bail at $300,000, records state.

The allegations: According to charging documents filed Thursday by state police Trooper Jonathan Colarusso, the 14-year-old girl said the assault happened at Leese's home on April 27.

The girl said she and Leese were watching a scary movie, and that Leese gave her alcohol and Vicodin, an opioid pain reliever until she began feeling intoxicated, documents state.

He then took off her pants and sexually assaulted her orally, vaginally and anally, documents allege.

The girl went to police three days later.

Colarusso also found online messages between the girl and Leese, which started in early March, according to police.

In a series of messages, Leese told the girl he would buy alcohol for her if she "gives him a piece of her 'sweet a--,'" documents state.
