Jessamine Co. sex offender accused of walking naked in yard

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - Neighbors said this is just the latest in a string of incidents like this. They said they're concerned for several young children in the area.

"I think it's sad that our kids can't be kids," said April Hansen, who lives down the street.

Hansen says she wasn't surprised to hear her neighbor, Leonard Mills had been arrested for indecent exposure.

"My neighbor actually next door to me, she has actually see him actually outside doing inappropriate things," she said.

Police say on Tuesday, Mills was naked in the backyard of his home. Mills was arrested back in 2009 for the same thing here at his home. He also served 11 years for a sodomy conviction in 1994. The Kentucky State Police sex offender registry lists the victim's age as 8 years old.

"We do have several small children on our street alone," said Hansen.

Hansen said the incidents have made it hard for her to feel comfortable while her children play outside.

"I do think that it's sad that in this day and time that our children cannot come out freely in their front yard and ride their bikes up and down the sidewalk. That's sad. That's sad to me," said Hansen.

Mills was lodged in the Jessamine County Detention Center on a $10,000 bond.
