DELAWARE COUNTY, Ohio (WCMH)- A former chess instructor in Delaware County was indicted on an additional charge of gross sexual imposition after another victim came forward.

According to the Delaware County Prosecutor’s Office, a Grand Jury indicted 61-year-old F. Leon Wilson on the charge after the new victim came forward with a report of abuse.

Wilson was originally indicted on April 30, 2015 on two counts of gross sexual imposition – both third-degree felonies. Both charges were against one victim, listed on the indictment as Jane Doe. Both charges carried a school zone specification, which could add time to a sentence.

“Since the original indictment, another victim has come forward alleging abuse at the hands of Wilson,” said Delaware County Prosecutor Carol O’Brien. “This report and subsequent investigation has resulted in an additional charge of gross sexual imposition.”

The latest charge of gross sexual imposition is also a third-degree felony, and like the original charges, it too carries a school zone specification. The second juvenile victim is listed on the new indictment as Mary Doe.

Wilson, of Columbus, is out of jail on $250,000 bond.
