A former Waterville man accused of furnishing marijuana and alcohol to two 16-year-old girls in May in Kingfield was arrested Wednesday, the second man charged in the incident.

Scott Leo, 27, with a last known address in Waterville, was arrested on two felony charges of aggravated furnishing of scheduled drugs, two misdemeanor charges of furnishing liquor to minors and a violation of condition of release.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for Leo’s arrest on the charges in June. He was arrested by Somerset County deputies Wednesday and taken to the Franklin County Jail, where he is being held in lieu of $2,500 cash bail.

Scott McLean, 24, of Kingfield, was arrested June 2 on similar charges in connection with the May incident. McLean is charged with two felony counts of aggravated furnishing of scheduled drugs, two misdemeanor charges of furnishing liquor to minors and a misdemeanor charge of furnishing a place for minors to consume alcohol. He was released on cash bail that day and was arrested again the following day on charges of violating conditions of release, according to the jail.

After receiving a complaint from the mother of one of the two girls on May 29, the sheriff’s office launched an investigation into the May 29 incident, according to an affidavit from Cpl. Kevin Hartley, of the sheriff’s office.

Leo and McLean met the two girls, who were baby-sitting in a park, and invited the girls back to McLean’s Mill Street apartment, where they allegedly gave the girls Fireball whiskey, Twisted Tea and marijuana, according to Hartley’s affidavit.


In interviews with Hartley and Detective Steven St. Laurent, both girls admitted having consumed the alcohol and taking “several hits” of the marijuana, according to the affidavit. Leo allegedly held the marijuana pipe in front of the girl and “she felt forced to smoke,” the affidavit said.

The affidavit also stated that during the interaction Leo allegedly touched one of the girls in an “inappropriate manner that did not meet the state statute for a crime.”

On Wednesday, a Franklin County judge set Leo’s bail at $2,500 cash or a pretrial contract. He is being held at the Franklin County Jail and is scheduled to appear in county on Aug. 30.
