STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - A judge has doubled the bond on a Stamford man for excessively writing to his former girlfriend from jail despite a prohibition against contacting her.

The Stamford Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1H01TRK ) that Deno Dawes was charged with two counts of violating a protective order and tampering with a witness.

He was supposed to be held on a $25,000 court appearance bond, but Stamford Superior Court Judge Alex Hernandez doubled it after reading the arrest warrant. He said he was “extremely, extremely concerned” about the obsessive nature of Dawes’ relationship with his former girlfriend.

The arrest affidavit says that after he was arrested Sept. 23 for violating the protective order for contacting his ex-girlfriend the first time, Dawes sent two letters in October to a neighbor of the woman. The letters were not delivered.
