A 53-year-old Billings man awaiting trial on charges that he raped a 17-year-old girl in 2004 and harassed her for years is now charged with creating a complicated scheme to rape a woman who said he sexually molested her when she was 8.

The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1bDYkWy ) Leslie Dean Ernst has pleaded not guilty to two counts of sexual intercourse without consent, one count of stalking and four counts that allege he harassed people via social media and cellphones.

Prosecutors say a woman told police Ernst used a fake name to befriend her on Facebook in 2012, got her to confide that she had been sexually abused as a child and then developed a scheme to help her get back at her molester that ended with Ernst raping the woman.
