Yesterday, the State of Vermont filed a motion for the dismissal without prejudice of the criminal charge of misdemeanor stalking against Raymond LeBlanc in Washington County Superior Court. The charge involved an allegation of stalking by Mr. LeBlanc concerning his course of conduct directed at his wife during the timeframe of May of 2018 through August of 2018. The state motioned that it could not proceed with the case because a necessary witness was not available to testify, and is not within the subpoena power of the State of Vermont. The matter was investigated by detectives of the Vermont State Police.

Superior Court Judge Mary Morrissey approved the State’s motion for dismissal without prejudice.

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.

The State of Vermont was represented by Assistant Attorney General John Waszak in the matter.
