BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A state judge has dismissed a temporary order of protection filed against Barry Beach after the woman who sought the order failed to show up for a hearing to determine whether it should become permanent.

District Judge Ingrid Gustafson gave the woman 90 minutes to show up Monday before dismissing the order. The woman received the order after saying she was the mother of Beach’s child and that he repeatedly contacted her against her wishes.

Beach attended a hearing in municipal court Tuesday on a misdemeanor charge alleging he violated the order that was dismissed Monday. KULR-TV reports Beach’s attorney was granted more time to review evidence.

State prosecutors have filed a motion to revoke the suspended sentence Beach was given when he was granted clemency after serving more than 30 years in prison for a 1979 homicide he says he didn’t commit.
