Toe request prompts police call

  • Follow Latest News

NORTH AUGUSTA -- A mother called North Augusta authorities Wednesday after locating a man who had been harassing her about her toe nails.

The mother told authorities her 17-year-old daughter first met Joey Leaphart outside Office Depot at 1135 Knox Avenue around noon Tuesday. Leaphart asked the girl for money. The teen told authorities she was scared and gave him $9.

Leaphart then asked the girl for her address to mail her the borrowed money, police said. Although she told officers she was uncomfortable giving her address to a stranger, she gave him her mother’s cell phone number.

The next day the mother received a call from the man she believed was Leaphart. He told the mother he had paid her daughter $40 to suck on her toes and had heard she was also looking to make money. He also asked what color the mother’s toes were painted.

The mother and daughter notified authorities after seeing the man walking down Martintown Road. They declined to prosecute the man they learned was a registered sex offender and asked him to quit harassing them.

Leaphart, 41, of the 100 block of Tutt Street in Langley, was issued a warning and released from police custody.

What would have happened had

What would have happened had she been niaive enough to give him her address? That mom better thank her lucky stars she raised such an intelligent daughter who was fast enough to give her mother's cell number instead of address. Good for her! If Leaphart is a registered sex offender, why can't the State prosecute him anyway for violating the terms of his restrictions??

Somebody needs a good ol'

Somebody needs a good ol' fashioned beat down to teach him a good lesson. Sex offenders are the worst among repeat offenders......Just a matter of time before someone else becomes a victim.
