Jeff Lechner, a now former maintenance man at the Mayerson JCC, was arrested at 3:50 a.m. on July 30 for charges concerning unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. The arrest was made by the Amberley Village Police Department while he was at work.
Lechner, 46, is facing felony charges from Clermont County since the alleged crimes were committed near Lechner’s home in Goshen, not at the JCC.
Further, Lechner’s job as an overnight maintenance man has had him nowhere near children, stated officials. Instead, Lechner is accused of molesting at least three teenage boys in the trailer park which is his home.
Both the Amberley Police and the Clermont County Sheriff’s office state that Lechner has no previous criminal record in Hamilton or Clermont counties, although they were unable to verify if he has any criminal record elsewhere.
