Middlesex woman charged for sexually assaulting teen and giving alcohol and drugs to children
MIDDLESEX TOWNSHIP, Pa. – A Middlesex Township woman is accused of operating a “party house” out of her home where she allegedly supplied alcohol and drugs to children as young as 10 years old.
Leah Rose Freeland, 25, is being charged with six felony counts of statutory sexual assault, six felony counts of corruption of minors, five misdemeanor counts of furnishing alcohol to minors and two misdemeanor counts of sale of a controlled substance.
Police say, she is also facing charges for sexually assaulted a 15-year-old boy inside the home on multiple occasions.
Police learned about the crimes on Feb. 25 after receiving a call to Childline, the Pennsylvania child abuse prevention hotline.
Investigation into the sexual assault on the 15-year-old was revealed when Freeland started having the boy over to her home in February where she gave him alcohol and prescription drugs, like Klonapin, and sexually assaulted him five to six times, police said.
Police say five other girls, ranging in age from 10 to 13 years old, also reported Freeland gave alcohol to them, as well.
Freeland was arrested Thursday and is currently being held at Cumberland County Prison on $20,000 bail.
