LIMA — Leon Prince said he left the Washington, D.C., area of northern Virginia and came to Lima to find a community in which to settle down. What he found instead, he told an Allen County judge on Monday, was “a bad epidemic” of crack cocaine.
A subsequent weekend of cocaine-fueled sex with a woman he had just met in July 2018 ended with Prince being led out of a Lima courtroom Monday to begin a 15-year prison sentence for kidnapping and sexual battery.
The stories surrounding the case presented to Judge Jeffrey Reed by Prince as well as the victim, who was in the courtroom and addressed Reed prior to sentencing, varied drastically.
