LITTLE ROCK, AR- A former North Little Rock Alderman who spent time in Federal Prison made a court appearance today.
Cary Gaines was arrested last week and charged with domestic violence and violating an order of protection.
He was convicted two years ago in a wire fraud case dealing with contract rigging.
Dara Booth claims Gaines attacked her last week outside of her home.
Gaines says that never happened.
The judge has granted a six month request for protection filed by Booth.
The domestic violence case is set for trial in September.
