A former Buffalo Grove village trustee pleaded guilty in Lake County circuit court Tuesday to a single count of violating an order of protection.

Lisa Stone, 52, of the 1900 block of Beverly Lane in Buffalo Grove, agreed to one year of supervision, 50 hours of community service and to submit to a psychiatric plan evaluation. Stone also agreed to call Buffalo Grove Village President Jeffrey Braiman only during business hours and to telephone 9-1-1 for emergency purposes only.

Lake County Judge George Strickland also told Stone not to contact her stepmother or have violent confrontational phone calls with her father, and she must follow all medication plans prescribed to her through a doctor.

In return, assistant state's attorney Christopher Corbin agreed to drop two other counts of violating the order of protection filed against Stone earlier this year.

A family spokesman declined to comment following the plea agreement.

Strickland said he was confident Stone could bring "peace and quiet" to the people around her as long as she listened to and followed any treatment prescribed to her.

"But, I'm sure I will find out quickly if you choose to back off the treatment you are on," Strickland said. "We want you well and happy, and everyone around you happy."

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

The charges allege Stone contacted her father, Hurd Shuman, through an unnamed third party, then made threatening and verbally abusive telephone calls to family members.

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

If Stone had been found guilty of the three counts filed against her, she could have been sentenced to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine.

Stone is due to return in court in 60 days to ensure she is abiding by the agreement.

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