Palin Gets Protective Order Over Alleged Threats

JUNEAU, Alaska — Sarah Palin has been granted a restraining order against a Pennsylvania man accused of stalking and threatening her.

Alaska Magistrate Judge Colleen Ray issued a 20-day protective order Monday against 18-year-old Shawn R. Christy, finding probable cause to believe he had stalked the former governor and vice presidential candidate.

Palin and her attorney claimed Christy made implied threats through phone and written messages, allegedly telling Palin to watch her back and saying he was buying a one-way ticket to Alaska and sending a receipt for a gun purchase.

Christy was ordered to have no contact with Palin's family and to stay a mile away from her home.

A message left for Christy at his home in McAdoo, Pa., wasn't immediately returned.

The Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman first reported the case.
