A Canton woman’s order of protection against an Ogdensburg police officer has no impact on the policeman’s job, Police Chief Richard J. Polniak Jr. said Thursday.

Corey J. Maxner, 26, Canton, pleaded not guilty Wednesday afternoon before Town Justice Christopher J. Curley to allegations that he kicked and banged a stranger’s front door in the village May 11. He was issued a criminal summons citing second-degree harassment. Police have said Mr. Maxner was in an intoxicated state at the time.

The judge refused a request by Mr. Maxner to lift an order of protection in favor of alleged victim Patricia Robert-Aldous after Mr. Maxner claimed the order affects his ability to do his job.

Mr. Polniak said that is not the case, because the order did not arise from a domestic incident. Mr. Maxner initially was placed on administrative leave for three days and then returned to work. Mr. Polniak said no disciplinary action would be take before the case is resolved.
