Boston-area priest charged in theft of money

A popular priest at a Haverhill, Mass., Roman Catholic church who resigned this summer after allegations of financial misconduct came to light is now facing charges.

Authorities say the Rev. Keith LeBlanc, former pastor of St. John the Baptist Church, has been issued a summons to appear in Haverhill District Court on Nov. 3 to face charges of larceny over $250 by a single scheme, and fraud. He was not arrested.
