Calvert man indicted on 106 counts of child rape, sex abuse


Curtis Andrew Leymeister II

Prince Frederick, MD - A Calvert County man is facing 106 felony counts in connection with allegations he sexually abused a young female over the course of three years, court officials reported. Calvert County Circuit Court indicted Curtis Andrew Leymeister II, 32 of Prince Frederick, in late December. According to a docket summary, Leymeister was indicted on 52 counts of second-degree rape and 54 counts of sex abuse of a minor.

According to a statement of probable cause, which was submitted early last month by Detective William Rector of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office’s Criminal Investigations Bureau, Child Protective Services contacted authorities about the alleged incidents. “Initial investigation revealed that over the past three years Curtis Andrew Leymeister II engaged in sexual intercourse of multiple levels with a minor,” Rector stated. “Victim stated these incidents of sexual intercourse started at age 12.The use of sexual aids, pornographic material and numerous sexual acts occurred at the residence. As the investigation continued, it was learned that Leymeister videotaped their sexual intercourse using a personally owned video camcorder and they viewed their sexual intercourse on several occasions.”

According to Rector’s statement, he and Detective Michael Mudd interviewed Leymeister, who admitted to police, “I hate myself so much.” A search and seizure warrant was executed at the residence where the lurid activity allegedly occurred. The search yielded “numerous sexual aids and implements,” Rector stated.

The victim told investigators that when the encounters first began “she would attempt to fight her way out but then succumbed to his [Leymeister’] size and strength,” Rector stated.

A District Court bail review resulted in the defendant being held at the detention center. Leymeister is being represented by Luke Woods of the Office of the Public Defender. Deputy State’s Attorney Kathryn Marsh is handing the prosecution, court records indicated. A trial is tentatively scheduled for late April.
