Council candidate was hit with no-trespass notices


LeBlanc said he never received the letter but has heard about its existence. He said the letter is based on a “non-event” that resulted in an accusation against him by school officials.

“An accusation was made — proven to be not true,” said LeBlanc. “I can’t remember that far back. I can’t remember what it was about.”

LeBlanc said he was at his winter home in Florida at the time the accusation was made. Despite the letter, LeBlanc said he is not barred from the campus and, to his knowledge, never has been.

“I’ve been over there many times since,” said LeBlanc. “Nobody’s ever said a word. ... I never received that letter, and I never had any problems.”

LeBlanc said he did receive the Barnes & Noble letter. The letter is dated April 9, 2002, and signed by Dana E. Giannotti, the company’s northeast regional loss prevention manager.

“I have been advised of your previous activities in our Salem, New Hampshire bookstore, including those on Tuesday, April 2, 2002,” wrote Giannotti. “Please be advised you are no longer welcome in any Barnes & Noble store, specifically the store located at 125 S. Broadway in Salem, N.H. If you choose to trespass, store management is instructed to notify their local law enforcement agency to file a criminal trespass complaint.”

LeBlanc said the Barnes & Noble ban “was lifted way back.”

“The only thing I can recall there is I was up reading a book and fell asleep and I was snoring and had none-too-pleasant a conversation with their manager,” said LeBlanc. “That’s all I can remember.”

In November 2008. LeBlanc was charged with a single count of assault and battery for giving fellow attorney Pamela Saia-Rogers a bearhug in Lawrence District Court.

Saia-Rogers told police that on Nov. 18, 2008, she was chatting with three other attorneys in the lobby of Lawrence District Court, when LeBlanc grabbed her from behind, “wrapped his arms around her midsection just below her breast and pulled her tightly to him pressing his pelvis against her backside” in a bearhug, according to a police report.
