The Osceola man who confessed to molesting a young female relative was in court Thursday.

Leonard Leach, 63, was arrested on December 12, 2014, and charged with child molesting and attempted child molesting. He confessed after the victim told a doctor and her mother about what happened.

At Thursday's pre-trial hearing, a jury trial was set to begin May 11.

Leach has admitted to police he made the girl touch his genitals. She was only eight or nine years old at the time.
