Robert Kennedy Jr. was granted a five-year restraining order against a man, whose name we have decided not to disclose, after he attempted to break into RFK and Cheryl Hines‘s home last month.
According to new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the man now has to stay away from the entire Kennedy family.
The man listed on the restraining order also may not “harass, intimidate, molest, attack, strike, threaten, assault, hit, abuse, destroy personal property of, or disturb the peace of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
The order also states there can be NO contact, either directly or indirectly, in any way. This includes “in person, by telephone, in writing, by public or private mail, by interoffice mail, by email, by text message, by fax, or by other electronic means.”
Judge Grants Robert F. Kennedy A Permanent Restraining Order
The man for whom Robert Kennedy Jr. filed the restraining order must stay at least 100 yards away from Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and his family members of RFK. This includes Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s home, workplace, and vehicle.
The restraining order also states that he cannot own, possess, buy, or try to buy firearms, guns, firearm parts, or ammunition.
The restraining order is good for five years.
This comes just weeks after the man was arrested after he attempted to break into Robert Kennedy Jr. and Cheryl Hines’s Los Angeles home — twice!
Last month, police received a burglary call to the Brentwood property, the home of Robert Kennedy Jr. and Cheryl Hines. Per our previous report, the man was attempting to break into the home, but it was unclear why he targeted the property. Kennedy’s security team was home at the time and was able to subdue the individual until the cops arrived and arrested him.
Cheryl Hynes was home at the time of the incident, and she noticed the guy in her yard, however, at this time it is still unclear if Robert Kennedy Jr. was also home. The situation was handled very quickly thanks to Kennedy’s security team.
Law enforcement was then called BACK to the home after that the same guy returned to the property the next morning around 1:30 a.m. He was arrested again for violating a court order.
Robert Kennedy Jr. Declares His Independent Candidacy For 2024 Election
Last month, just before the stalking incident occurred, Kennedy Jr. declared his Independent candidacy for the 2024 Presidential Election — ending his Democratic primary campaign.
Steven Cheung, a spokesperson for former President Donald Trump spoke out about Kennedy Jr.’s candidacy, stating, “Voters should not be deceived by anyone who pretends to have conservative values.”
He then labeled Kennedy’s campaign “nothing more than a vanity project for a liberal Kennedy looking to cash in on his family’s name.”
Brian Seitchik, a Republican strategist and former Trump campaign veteran also spoke out on Kennedy Jr.’s decision to run independently, claiming “I think that he is a lot of things, but I don’t think he’s a dummy. Now that he’s moved into running as an independent, I think his specific policy positions are frankly going to matter more.”
“On the surface, those positions are going to more appeal to Republican voters and therefore pull votes out of Donald Trump,” he added.
