A former chef for a Nevada jail was arrested late last month for allegedly having an inmate perform a sex act in exchange for a candy bar.
Las Vegas Metropolitan police said Leon Spencer, 48, propositioned a male inmate working for him at Las Vegas City Jail in November 2019. Spencer offered the inmate a Snickers chocolate bar for completing the undisclosed sex act, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The victim reported the alleged encounter, telling police he did so because he did not want to interact with Spencer at work the following day. The Review-Journal reported that the victim had been incarcerated since February 2019 on drug-related charges.
Surveillance footage allegedly showed Spencer and the inmate entering a bathroom and leaving consecutively, corroborating the inmate’s story.
Spencer was arrested on December 21 on charges of voluntary sex conduct with a prisoner, open and gross lewdness, and soliciting or engaging in prostitution. He was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court in April.
