LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - A judge has issued a permanent protection order against a failed Republican candidate for district attorney in Maine, barring him from having any contact with a woman.

The Sun Journal reports the judge issued the order Friday against Seth Carey, who denies the woman’s accusations and says she was a campaign volunteer and not an ex-girlfriend.

The Auburn woman filed a protection order last month saying Carey stalked her at her home and followed her car.

Violation of the permanent order is punishable by up to six months in jail.

A judge put Carey on interim suspension after a different woman was granted a permanent protection order in April. A hearing on potential sanctions is scheduled for Wednesday.



Carey lost the general election Tuesday to incumbent Andrew Robinson.
