$40 was the offer that Columbus City School Principal, Leon Leavell (43) risked when responding to a sex backpage.com ad. The advertisement was posted by an undercover police detective, Laura L. Evans. The ad was offering intercourse and oral sex in exchange for cash.
After communicating via text and calls to coordinate meeting at the Easton Hilton hotel in Columbus, Leon was arrested in the room. Leavell pled not guilty on Monday at Franklin County Municipal Court.
