Preliminary exam for former Michigan basketball captain Leslie Rockymore adjorned; polygraph coming

By

A preliminary exam was adjourned again today for the captain for a Michigan basketball team that won the Big Ten title in the 1980s and a former coach at his high school alma mater, Detroit Southwestern, who, with two others, were arrested for allegedly offering to trade drugs for sex.

Leslie Rockymore, 51, of Eastpointe has a June 18 preliminary exam in 41-B District Court in Clinton Township along with Johnny Johnson, 44, of Detroit. Today’s hearings were adjourned so an unidentified co-defendant could take a polygraph test, according to the court.

They were charged with delivery/manufacturing of cocaine, a felony firearms offense, prostitution/accosting and soliciting and using a computer to commit a crime, according to the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office after their arrest last month.

Darrell Williams, 43, of Detroit was charged with prostitution/accosting and soliciting and having an open container of alcohol in a vehicle in the incident, according to the sheriff’s office. The court said his trial on the misdemeanor offenses also is set for June 18 so the unidentified co-defendant can take a polygraph test.

The trio was arrested after detectives talked with one of the men, via the Internet, who solicited sex for drugs. He told investigators he was going to pick up some friends and bring “snow” to exchange for sex.

When they arrived at a prearranged location in Macomb County, they were arrested. Detectives found powdered cocaine, crack cocaine and a .40-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun in their vehicle, the sheriff’s office said.
