UPDATES: More charges for man accused of breaking into Scotland home, having sex with underage girl in it

14 June 2024- More charges are being levied against a man already previously charged with breaking into a home near Scotland and having sex with an underage girl in it. Leonardo Davon Mac Hart remains behind bars on an additional bail of $5,000, which is on top of the previous $5,000 he was given for his prior charges. Hart was recently charged with felony criminal trespassing, summary defiant trespassing on posted property, and misdemeanor loitering and prowling at night.

Hart, Pennsylvania State Police say, was involved in an incident that allegedly saw him break into a victim’s home on Scotland Road with a 16 year old juvenile, have sex, and then steal a number of items prior to them fleeing the residence. The back door, PSP say, was left open by the juvenile in an effort to try to get back into the home, which the two believed was vacant at the time.

Leonardo Hart’s most recent charges stem from an incident that initially put him on the radar of PSP for the previous incident. Troopers say that just around 11pm on the night of May 17th, the owner of a home on Scotland Road called PSP and said someone was on the rear porch of her residence. That caller was not home at the time due to the home being burglarized the night prior.

When Troopers showed up, they allegedly encountered Hart. He reportedly tried to say he was trying to ascertain if the home was for rent, but when questioned why he was on the back porch at that time of night, Hart allegedly admitted that he attempted to turn the door handle and enter the home but it was locked. During this incident, Hart reportedly denied ever being inside the home.

Further investigation led PSP to charge Hart with the aforementioned crimes due to the confession of the juvenile he allegedly committed them with.

Leonardo Hart remains behind bars on $10,000 combined bail.
