Torrington sex of­fender charged

The Register Citizen (Torrington, CT) - - FRONT PAGE - STAFF RE­PORTS

WINCHESTER — A Torrington man who is a convicted sex of­fender was ar­rested again Fri­day morn­ing and charged with sex­ual as­sault, ac­cord­ing to a po­lice news re­lease.

Jean Y. Le­conte, 30, of Park Av­enue in Torrington, is ac­cused of ap­proach­ing a woman in a Winsted shop and “per­form­ing an act of sex­ual de­prav­ity on her” while she was pick­ing items up off the floor, the re­lease said.

Le­conte was iden­ti­fied by his photo in the Con­necti­cut Sex Of­fender Registry, the re­lease said. He has prior con­vic­tions in Fair­field and Trum­bull for sim­i­lar of­fenses, po­lice said in the re­lease.

Le­conte is charged with

fourth-de­gree sex­ual as­sault, pub­lic in­de­cency and sec­ond-de­gree breach of peace. He was ar­raigned in Torrington Su­pe­rior Court and his bail was set at $10,000.

The Sex Of­fender Registry says that Le­conte “on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions be­tween 2010 and 2013 went to depart­ment stores and

mas­tur­bated in pub­lic,” in­clud­ing on “at least two oc­ca­sions” left bod­ily flu­ids on vic­tims.

On­line Ju­di­cial Depart­ment records show Le­conte re­ceived a sus­pended sen­tence of six months in pri­son in 2014 on charges of ob­scen­ity and pub­lic in­de­cency. He also was sen­tenced at that time to two years of pro­ba­tion, and that pro­ba­tion was con­tin­ued in 2015 to an un­spec­i­fied date, the on­line records show.

The charges were brought by Fair­field po­lice stem­ming from an April 2013 al­le­ga­tion.

In a sep­a­rate case listed in the on­line Ju­di­cial Depart­ment records, Le­conte also re­ceived a sus­pended pri­son sen­tence and pro­ba­tion on charges of fourthde­gree sex­ual as­sault, ob­scen­ity and pub­lic in­de­cency.

That case stemmed from an Au­gust 2013 “of­fense date,” the on­line records

show. In a 2014 case, Le­conte also was convicted of fourth-de­gree sex­ual as­sault and pub­lic in­de­cency, stem­ming from a 2010 “of­fense date,” in Fair­field, the records show.

The case in Trum­bull, also listed with an “of­fense date” of 2010, re­sulted in 2014 in a sus­pended sen­tence of six months on charges of pub­lic in­de­cency and sec­ond-de­gree breach of peace, on­line Ju­di­cial Depart­ment records show.
