2 Charged With Capital Sexual Battery

Deputies have arrested two men and charged them with sexually battering a child in Collier County.

Deputies arrested Constantin Caporal, 60, 5345 Sholtz St., East Naples, and Jean Schamma Leandre, 32, 5245 30th St. S.W., Lehigh Acres.

Investigators say Caporal and Leandre sexually battered the child on separate occasions in different locations.

Leandre was arrested Friday and charged with two counts of capital sexual battery on a victim younger than 12.

Caporal was arrested Thursday and charged with four counts of sexual battery on a victim younger than 12.

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office is not releasing the victim’s identity because of the sexual nature of the crime. Florida law prohibits the release of information that could reveal the identity of a victim of a sexual offense.

Leandre was being booked into the Collier County jail late Friday afternoon. His arrest photo and arrest report will be released when they are available.

No additional details are available at this time.
