this guy used to work with us at LAX. Some co-workers thought he behaved oddly, and flashed lots of cash to female co workers.

It's got to be hard on you to know that your brother could have done this. Be strong for yourself. Just because your brother did these things doesn't make you a bad person. Good luck to you because you are also a victim.

I personally know this idiot and I am glad that he was arrested...he deserves it!

My prayers go out to the victims, their families and all who are affected by Leonís decisions to dishonor himself and others...this type of trauma does not just go away but it takes years to purge it out of the systems of those affected.

Let he without sin cast the first stone. If he repents and means it in his heart God will for give him. Pray for the victim and the defendant.

It is so hard to believe this has happened. I believe that he was a preacher of the Gospel. I hope that the victims and families will seek God's guidance.
