TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A stalking injunction against the former CEO of Capital City Youth Services has been dropped.

According to court documents, Leon County Circuit Judge Stephen Everett allowed the injunction against Kevin Priest to expire on April 1, 2020 after finding that Priest "fully abided by all terms and conditions of the injunction."

The judge also cited "COVID-19 quarantine conditions" as part of the reason the injunction was allowed to expire.

A woman Priest previously dated was granted the injunction on November 25, 2019.

In court documents filed then, the woman said she and Priest dated for two and a half months before she ended their relationship on June 5, 2019. Following the breakup, the woman said that Priest would call her "nonstop" and sent numerous threatening texts.

An attorney for Priest alleged that instead of leaving him alone, the woman "sought to further fan the flames of animosity" and actively participated in continuing the relationship.
