A man who twice illegally entered the Silver Lake home of L.A. City Councilman and mayoral hopeful, Eric Garcetti, was ordered by a judge on Thursday to stay at least 100 yards away from the house for the next three years.

Garcetti's wife, Amy Wakeland, sought the restraining order against James A. Pagano Jr. who she said appeared to be “an unstable individual” and possibly a substance abuser, the L.A. Times reported. He showed up at the house as recently as last month and walked inside saying he was there for a "DirecTV meeting" with Garcetti.

Pagano, 37, was convicted of aggravated trespassing two weeks ago and has a previous conviction related to a domestic violence restraining order, according to officials.
