A Rogers man was arrested last week for sexual assault.

Joey Le, 30, was arrested on September 16 for suspicion of:

  • second-degree sexual assault
  • failure to comply with registration reporting requirements
  • contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

According to a probable cause report, the incident stemmed from a 15-year old who was at Le’s residence on September 5.

He hasn’t been formally charged.

I hope he gets what he deserves. I’ve just been waiting on that for awhile.

Benton County Prosecuting Attorney Nathan Smith said that should happen before Le’s next court appearance scheduled for late October.

Le was transported to the Benton County Jail and has since bonded out.

KNWA/FOX 24 spoke to his attorney, Kimberly Weber.

“My client is a hard-working young man here in Northwest Arkansas,” Weber said. “My client denies all of the allegations.”

This is not Le’s first time to be in trouble with the law.

Joey is just a good upstanding young man who has had problems in the past.

Time went on and I found out he was talking to more 13-year-olds and 12-year-olds.

You can be hardworking but still have this side of you doing this to other women. That doesn’t make it okay.
