ROGERSVILLE — A Surgoinsville man who was already serving a 180-day sentence for violation of an order of protection against his ex-girlfriend was charged last week with that same charge for allegedly sending a letter to a friend of his ex.

Calvin Lance Mauk, 44, 330 Williams St., Surgoinsville, was arrested in August after he sent his ex-girlfriend unwanted texts and Facebook posts, as well as posting signs for her outside her home and workplace after an order of protection was signed.

Mauk later called his ex from jail, but those charges were dismissed because he hadn’t actually been served the order of protection yet.

Mauk was arrested again for violation of an order of protection on Sept. 3 and pleaded guilty on Sept. 18 in exchange for a 180-day jail sentence.

This past Tuesday, Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Cory Young met with the ex-girlfriend who stated her friend and co-worker had received a four-page letter from Mauk in which the ex was referenced several times as “her.”

The letter reportedly asks the friend to contact “her” several times and also referenced the ex’s juvenile son.

An order of protection served on Mauk on Aug. 26 doesn’t expire until July 30, 2020.

A check of Mauk’s inmate mail history showed that he sent a letter Sept. 19.

In Mauk’s original arrest, the ex accused him of leaving voicemails, calling her place of employment, texting and posting a statement on Facebook with more than 70 photos of the two of them together. Mauk also allegedly posted numerous signs with messages to her near her home, an Interstate 26 on-ramp she uses to go to work every day and outside her place of employment.

Mauk remains held in the Hawkins County Jail serving his sentence and is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Sessions Court on the new charge.
