Investigators have alleged that Leeks told two unidentified women that they had to have sex with him in order to make up for the actions of their respective boyfriends, Carter said.

According to investigators, Leeks allegedly threatened to kill the women, their children and other members of the family if they did not comply.

Additional details of the investigation were not immediately made available.

Leeks now stands charged with conspiracy, criminal coercion, sexual assault and threatening violence, Carter said. Following an arraignment, he was transferred into custody at the Essex County Correctional Facility, where he’s currently being held on $750,000 bond, she added.

The Newark Police Department and New Jersey State Parole Board assisted in the investigation, Carter said.
