Concord Teacher Facing Sexual Assault, Child Pornography Charges

On September 29, 30-year-old Donald D. Levesque of Concord was arrested on sex-related charges. Investigations began earlier in the year by the Merrimack County Sheriff’s Office after allegations were made against Levesque. He is charged with three counts of manufacture of child sexual abuse images, two counts of possession of child sexual abuse images, two counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault, one count of endangering the welfare of a child, and three counts of sexual assault. iStock_000016750168_Large (2)

Levesque was reportedly a teacher at Shaker Road School in Concord, however he is no longer employed there according to school officials. It all began when a girl who was reportedly in a relationship with Levesque was interviewed by the Merrimack County Advocacy Center and a detective with the Sheriff’s dept. At that time, it was learned that the girl was of the age of consent, and the matter was dropped. A second interview with the girl revealed that there had been an encounter between the girl, Levesque, and a boy who was 13 years old. At that point, the girl decided to approach the situation with authorities once again because she felt she was being taken advantage of. The girl alleges that she also engaged in sexual activity with the underage boy in December of 2013, because she was instructed to do so by Levesque.

The boy was interviewed just last month regarding the allegations, and admitted that Levesque had sexual activity with him over a two-year time span. Ultimately, it was revealed that Snapchat was used to take sexually explicit pictures and share those pictures. In addition, the boy told authorities that a video was taken of at least one of the sexual encounters with Levesque’s cell phone.

Sex-related offenses involving minors are extremely serious, regardless of the state in which they occur. In Michigan, sexual assault of someone age 13 or younger which involves penetration may be charged as first-degree criminal sexual conduct, the most serious charge of all. A conviction may result in a life prison term, as well as lifetime registration as a sex offender.

In addition, possession of child sexually abusive material or child pornography will result in extremely harsh punishment. Ultimately, a conviction for any sex offense involving minors or children may not only cost a person his or her freedom, but reputation, career, and family relationships as well. Accusations of sex crimes involving minors can literally ruin a person’s life, even in circumstances where the allegations are false.

If you have been accused of sexually assaulting a child, child pornography, or any related offense, consult with a highly experienced Michigan sex crimes lawyer immediately in order to protect your legal rights and future to the greatest extent possible.
