ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A court magistrate is set to consider a request by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to extend a restraining order against a 19-year-old Pennsylvania man accused of stalking her.

At Monday's hearing, a magistrate in Anchorage will consider extending the order against Shawn Christy of McAdoo by six months.

Palin, her father, Chuck Heath, and her friend, Kristan Cole, also have been seeking long-term protective orders against Christy's parents, Craig and Karen Christy.

Craig Christy is accused of barraging Palin's parents with harassing telephone messages, including 26 in one day, and contacting Cole's children on Facebook. Cole's request for a protective order against Karen Christy was denied last month.

Palin and Cole obtained original restraining orders against Shawn Christy last year.
