LAPORTE | A man once accused of stalking the mayor of LaPorte is back on probation for violating a protective order placed against him by another woman.
Jeff Galey, 39, was sentenced Wednesday in LaPorte Circuit Court to one year on probation for Class A misdemeanor criminal trespass and a probation violation.
In August, Galey showed up at Cummings Lodge to participate in a triathlon.
There were several workers registering the participants and collecting their entrance fees.
Galey walked up to a female worker that he wasn't supposed to have contact with and asked “if she was the one he was supposed to give his money to,” according to court documents.
In July, Galey was given credit for the 119 days in jail he had served following his arrest and placed on 127 days probation for Class A misdemeanor trespassing.
That conviction came after he was accused of leaving a note for a female employee at a bank in LaPorte that told him to never return, and often pursuing Mayor Blair Milo after the pair met during her election campaign.
As part of his latest stint on probation, the court ordered Galey to undergo or continue any counseling recommended by probation officials and his health care provider, according to terms of the plea.
