IOWA FALLS – A Mason City man has been jailed in a nearby county on several felony charges in connection with attempting to solicit a child.

The Hardin county jail listed three felony charges against 26-year-old Samuel Audiel Leider of Mason City. NIT readers may remember Mr. Leider, as he has been arrested on drunk driving charges on more than one occasion. Leider is facing three felony charges in Hardin county:

– LASCIVIOUS ACTS W/CHILD – SOLICITATION (FELD)

– SEXUAL EXPLOIT. OF CHILDREN – 1983 (FELC) 709.8(3)~710.10(2)~728.12(1)

An incident allegedly took place on September 6 at a park in Iowa Falls involving Leider. NIT is told he traveled there to meet a 14-year-old female that he added to a social media chat program. According to a social media post, a man intervened and confronted Leider at the park and took him to the police station, where he was then arrested.

Leider was jailed and released on September 8 after using Lederman Bonding to post a $20,000.00 cash or surety bond. He is due back in Hardin county court on September 19.

    so. hes guilty and we know it.what if the family had done the RIGHT thing, set up the meet and then two or three guys jump this pervert beat him within inchs of death then leave him in the bushs to die. thats called justice. i dont even see a black eye or any broken facial bones. we need to take this child molester thing into our own hands and show the leo what we expect to happen to perverts, the leo work for us yet they protect child molesters from us? id say that makes them child molesters by association.

      You must be a disgruntled former Curries Employee that was fired for good cause. They provide a decent living with decent benefits for a lot of hard working people.

        they overwork idiots who think 70 hours a week is a fair deal for $17 an hr. you must be one of those braindead morons who cant see that the work environment and amount of labor you put in is not worth what you get out of it. lol enjoy being a slave for a company that is going to drop you like a handful of hot turds the first time you get injured because of the strain you put on your body for them. curries is an evil corporation its staffed by hick jerk offs and sorry but any job where you see your coworkers more than your kids is a straight up shithole.
