Man accused of having sex with teen while parents slept

MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

A McEwen man is accused of having sex with a teenager while her parents slept.

Rutherford County detectives said Harry John Leschen, 46, met the girl in an internet chat room two months ago. Eventually, Leschen traveled from McEwen to meet the girl at her home in Almaville, investigators said.

Authorities say the two had sex while her parents slept in another room.

On Tuesday, Leschen allegedly tried to enter the girl's home again, armed with a handgun.

Detectives were waiting and made the arrest.

Leschen is charged with statutory rape, aggravated burglary and gun possession.

He was booked into the Rutherford County Jail, where he was released after posting a $350,000 bond Wednesday.

A hearing is set for June 5.
