Quote from report: "When Judge Robert Noonan asked Leach to admit to choking his victim, Leach held a private conversation with his attorney, who then spoke with District Attorney Lawrence Friedman and Friedman agreed to amend the language of the charge to pushing his victim on the bed and causing her to fear for her safety)."

He choked a person and doesn't even have to admit to it in a court of law. Lets paint a house purple and call it pink!

He was pushing her throat from all sides. Seems plausible.
