BOSTON (CBS) – An I-Team investigation reveals allegations that a high-profile lawyer running for public office has a disturbing past.

The I-Team has the police reports and an exclusive interview all coming to light for the first time.

Kevin Marr says he will never forget Robert LeBlanc. Marr says, “I don’t think a person like him should be in a position of power.”

LeBlanc is an attorney, a former town manager, a lawyer for the state Democratic Party and he’s now running for City Council in Methuen.

Marr says, “He asked me if I wanted a massage and I was like absolutely not, it’s totally inappropriate.”

Marr says LeBlanc gave him a slip of paper with his name and phone number. He explains, “He gave that to me and told me to call him if I changed my mind.”

Marr says LeBlanc only stopped harassing him after he filed a police report. Marr’s high school also sent a no trespassing letter to LeBlanc ordering him to stay away from the school or face arrest. The letter was sent after Marr told school officials he’d seen LeBlanc at his school, apparently there for a meeting.

“I was nervous, yes, I was nervous,” Marr recalls.

LeBlanc also received a no trespassing letter from Barnes and Noble, ordering him to never set foot in any of their stores.

That no trespassing letter came two years after a police report in 2000. A male customer at Barnes & Noble told police LeBlanc followed him into the men’s room “… And while [the customer] was in the stall, LeBlanc stood in front of the urinal and allegedly [touched himself inappropriately].” (Continued…)
