Judge: No contact means none


WAKEFIED — A Hope Valley woman and her attorney were firmly informed that even a meeting to discuss family issues inside the courthouse would be a violation of a no-contact order issued by Judge Madeline Quirk on Tuesday.

The no-contact order was part of the terms of release for Melanie H. Fox, 37, whose address was listed as 196 Skunk Hill Road. Her address was listed as being in Warwick when she was arrested on Sunday, Aug. 18.

Fox pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor cyberstalking after Hopkinton police said she sent texts and left dozens of cellphone messages for a Hope Valley man during a two-month span.

Hopkinton police said the man presented them with evidence that between May 2 and July 21, she messaged him 85 times, called 14 times, and left more than 16 minutes of recordings in 10 separate voice mails. The man, according to police, said he made attempts to block every phone associated with Fox, but she would change phones.

Fox was released on a promise to appear on Sept. 24 and have no contact with the alleged victim.
