STOCKTON (AP) — A former Stockton mayor has been arrested for having a firearm in violation of a protective order issued against him.

The San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office says former Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva was arrested Thursday night by the California Department of Justice.

Sacramento television station KCRA reports jail records show he was booked on a felony weapons possession charge and a misdemeanor charge.

Silva’s attorney, Allen Sawyer, says the misdemeanor charge is related to Silva talking to a minor he was ordered not to contact.

The no contact order stems from a no contest plea Silva entered last year in Amador County. The no contact order also prevents Silva from owning a gun.

Silva faced four misdemeanor charges from a 2015 incident at a weeklong camp he ran for underprivileged children.
