A Kendall County judge has ordered an Oswego man and former Aurora alderman to stay away from Yorkville Alderman Joel Frieders for at least two years.

Judge Joseph Voiland approved a two-year plenary stalking no contact order on Feb. 7 against Marc Roberts of Oswego, which orders that Roberts is prohibited from contacting Frieders or his wife "in any way, directly, indirectly or through third parties, including, but not limited to, phone, written notes, mail, email or fax."

Roberts must also stay at least 300 feet away from Frieders, his residence, his workplace, his children's schools and Yorkville City Hall when Frieders is present until at least Feb. 7, 2020, according to the order.

Roberts appeared before Voiland at the Kendall County Courthouse on Feb. 7 and was served with the order during the hearing, according to court documents.

Judge Robert Pilmer approved an emergency stalking no-contact order on Jan. 19 that expired on Feb. 7.

Roberts served as an alderman for the city of Aurora in the 1990s.

The document states that any knowing violation of such an order is a Class A misdemeanor on the first violation and a Class 4 felony for a second or subsequent violation.
