story was covered Tuesday responded to the allegations against her Tuesday evening.Ruth LeBlanc-Jones, the New Canaan realtor facing larceny and burglary charges whose
LeBlanc-Jones was alleged to have rented out and continued to show a home with which she was not supposed to have any connection with at the time she is charged with doing so, according to New Canaan authorities.
President of MGP & Associates PR Mike Paul, a representative from a public relations firm and not legal counsel, contacted Patch Tuesday evening with a response, reproduced in part as follows:
"Ruth LeBlanc-Jones is not guilty and we will prove so in court with evidence. Her company was hired by Jennifer Hilton to clean, secure an ownership partner for needed property improvements, supervise these improvements and then help sell Ms. Hilton's deceased father's home. As with all real estate brokers, Ruth LeBlanc-Jones was given keys to the home early in the process to do so. No larceny or burglary ever occurred and saying so is a disgrace and a lie."
The emailed letter contained a number of other statements, in particular allegations that an individual connected with NBC News used their position to coerce New Canaan Police into filing the charges Paul claims are unfounded. Those statements have been omitted until police can give a statement in response.
