Attorney General T.J. Donovan announced that Raymond LeBlanc of Berlin, Vermont, a sergeant with the Vermont State Police, was arraigned today in Washington County Criminal Court on one count of misdemeanor stalking.  Mr. LeBlanc, represented by attorney Oreste V. Valsangiacomo, Jr., entered a plea of not guilty. Superior Court Judge Mary Morrissey, presiding over the arraignment, set conditions of release and the matter has been scheduled for a status conference on March 12, 2019.

As a result of the charges, Mr. LeBlanc faces a potential maximum period of incarceration of up to two years, or a maximum fine of up to $5,000, or both.

The charge involves an allegation of stalking by Mr. LeBlanc concerning his course of conduct directed at his wife during the timeframe of May of 2018 through December of 2018. The matter was investigated by detectives of the Vermont State Police.

The Attorney General’s Office reminds the public that a criminal charge contained in a charging document filed with the Court is merely a formal accusation of conduct, and not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
