A Boise man accused of felony lewd conduct with a child in June has since been charged with three additional felony counts of attempted sexual abuse of a child, and investigators say they are seeking more possible victims.

The Boise Police Department alleges LeRoy A. Mickey, 53, of Boise, engaged on June 12 in lewd conduct with a child at a Boise home. On June 26, additional reports brought evidence that Mickey had attempted to abuse three other children, police say.

A U.S. Marshal’s Office task force in Nampa arrested Mickey in early July. Online court records indicate his next hearing is a district court arraignment on Tuesday.

Police say they believe there may be more juvenile victims of similar acts by Mickey. Anyone with relevant information is asked to call 208-343-COPS.
