A former Buffalo Grove village trustee was ordered to have no contact with immediate family members after she pleaded not guilty to violating an order of protection in Lake County Court on Friday.

Lisa Stone was also warned by Lake County Judge George Strickland to not call 9-1-1 unless reporting an emergency.

If found guilty of the three misdemeanor counts filed against her, Stone could be sentenced to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine, Strickland said during the court appearance.

She is due back in court at 1:30 p.m. on March 21.

Stone said after the hearing that she wanted to comment to the media when approached at the Lake County Courthouse, but her statements had nothing to do with the court case.

She is free from jail after posting 10 percent of a $10,000 bond.

Stone was arrested March 8 by Mundelein police on allegations she violated the order of protection obtained against her by family members.

The charges allege Stone contacted her father, Hurd Shuman, through an unnamed third party. That violates the Feb. 7 order of protection.

In obtaining that order, family members stated Stone repeatedly made threatening and verbally abusive telephone calls to them.

In court, Stone said Shuman continues to contact her, but Strickland warned her to not take the phone call.

Stone was elected a Buffalo Grove village trustee seat in 2009, but she was recalled by voters in a historic 2010 decision.
