Leonard Raymond Curry

A Catoosa County man has been arrested for allegedly molesting a middle school girl, police say.

According to the Catoosa County Sheriff’s Department:

Leonard Raymond Curry, 18, of Clydesdale Lane in Ringgold, was arrested June 15 on three counts of child molestation, statutory rape, and aggravated sexual battery.

He’s being held in Catoosa County jail without bond.

On May 5, a counselor at Lakeview Middle School informed police of possible sexual abuse taking place involving a female student.

The counselor told deputies the student confided in the school nurse that she could possibly be pregnant and that molestation had taken place, reports show.

Investigators interviewed the child.

Warrants were taken out on Curry the next day.
