MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa — A former Marshalltown City Council member already charged with harassment has been charged with violating a no-contact order.

Patrick Stansberry, 32, was charged last week, accused by police of making several calls to a woman who made the original harassment complaint in July.

Stansberry, who now lives in Ames, has pleaded not guilty to the harassment charge and is scheduled for trial on Feb. 28.

Stansberry was elected to the City Council in 2010 and served a year before deciding not to seek re-election. He spent five years as an elementary teacher in Marshalltown, resigning in January 2012 to take a training job.

A phone listing for Stansberry could not be found. His lawyer didn’t immediately return a call on Tuesday. — AP
