A couple from Morgan County, Alaska was arrested in Caroll County, Georgia on October 30 by U.S. Marshals for several sex crimes. The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office said Michael William Lesher, 52, was indicted on two counts of first-degree rape by forcible compulsion, one count of incest, four counts of first-degree sodomy, one count of second-degree rape, and two counts of first-degree sexual abuse.
The man alone represents a highly dangerous predator but he was not alone in the crimes. Morgan County Sheriff’s Office says Lisa Lesher, 39, was also indicted on four counts of sodomy by forcible compulsion, one count of second-degree sodomy, one count of sexual torture and one count of first-degree sexual abuse. The despicable pair of predators waived extradition on November 7 and were transported to Morgan County Jail. The charges were actually reported 10 years ago but could not be prosecuted until recently when the victims came forward and are now prepared to follow through.
Both of the incest pedophile rapists received bond set at $435,000 and $437,000. The prosecution is the result of a combination of agencies working together including the Department of Human Resources, the Child Advocacy Center, the District Attorney and the Morgan County Sheriff’s Special Victims Unit.
