Sex offender fired from Tedesco
By Alan Burke
Staff writer

MARBLEHEAD - A Level 3 sex offender hired by the Tedesco Country Club has been fired from his job.
Nicholas McLeod, 23, of Lynn neglected to reveal his past convictions when he filled out an application recently to work at the club, manager Gregg Lindsay said.
An initial check of his record failed to uncover a 2001 conviction for open and gross lewdness and lascivious behavior and indecent assault and battery on a child.
In 2003, McLeod was convicted of rape and abuse of a child, indecent assault and battery on a child, and open and gross lewdness, according to the state Executive Office of Public Safety Web site.
"We do a prescreening of all employees," Lindsay said, "but nothing was discovered as a result of the first screening." He was subsequently alerted to McLeod's background on Monday by a state agency, which he declined to name.
McLeod was immediately placed on suspension, then fired.
The nature of McLeod's crime worried Lindsay, who saw a potential concern for club members particularly given that the crime involved a child.
"It's a family organization (at Tedesco)," he said. "We're very family-oriented."
Dismissing McLeod was a matter of security, according to Lindsay.
"Please understand that the safety of our members and that of the community as a whole is our primary concern."
