Leonard, who was not aggressive, told the father that the girl invited him over to their home. He claimed he thought the girl was 21. But the girl said the man was aware of her real age.
According to KPRC, Leonard said he had been talking to the girl through Facebook and Instagram.
The 12-year-old told authorities that she had met Leonard while using public transportation a few weeks prior to the incident. She said he gave her his phone number and they contacted each other through texts and phone calls.
