Public's help sought regarding past history of Concord man accused in youth sex assault
CONCORD - The Merrimack County Sheriff's Office is asking the public for help in learning more about the past history of Donald Levesque, a former teaching assistant and sports coach charged with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy.
According to the Concord Monitor, Merrimack County Sheriff Scott Hilliard indicated he is seeking information about possible illegal relationships Levesque might have had with minors in the past.
“We’re trying to do a history on this guy,” Hilliard said. “Where he’s been and what he’s done. He was a teacher and actively was a coach, so obviously there are concerns there, and my staff can’t work fast enough to get all the questions answered.”
Levesque, 30, a former Shaker Road School teacher assistant and a former coach of area youth football and soccer is facing multiple sexual assault charges involving students.
Levesque is also charged with making and possessing child pornography as well as sending text messages that were sexual in nature to another boy.
Anyone with information related to the Levesque case is asked to call the Merrimack County Attorney’s Office Investigator Jennifer Adams at 228-0529, ext. 350, or detective Mario Messina at the Merrimack County Sheriff’s Office at 796-6621.
The county sheriff’s department opened an investigation in early 2014, when an 18-year-old female student at St. Paul’s School told officials she had had a sexual encounter with Levesque, then 28. No charges were filed, but the case remained open, the Monitor reports.
Then, last August, the student and officials met again, and this time she claimed she and the boy had been involved in sexual acts together with Levesque in December of 2013.
The boy corroborated the story last month, leading to Levesque’s arrest.
The Levesque family is prominent in the community. His mother was a teacher at Shake Road School and is brother is a member of Concord police, which is why the Merrimack County Sherriff’s office conducted the investigation.
