CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- The former Chickahominy Middle School teacher arrested earlier this year and charged with sex crimes against a child now faces additional charges.

Leslie E. Deane Jr., 64, was arrested on Monday, June 27, and charged with aggravated sexual battery and indecent liberties with a child by a custodian, according to Chesterfield Police. Following his June arrest, police said they had received a report that Deane inappropriately touched a juvenile female who attended an in-home daycare operated at Deane’s Neptune Drive home.

At that time, police asked anyone with additional information or other potential victims to call with tips.
