Republican Sen. Wendy Rogers obtained an injunction against harassment against a reporter investigating whether Rogers actually lives in the district she was elected to represent.

A Flagstaff Justice Court judge granted a petition that orders Arizona Capitol Times reporter Camryn Sanchez not to contact Rogers at her residence.

The publication says Sanchez was investigating where Rogers lives. The senator represents District 7, which includes Flagstaff, Payson, Show Low and Williams.

Rogers owns homes in Tempe and Chandler. She lists a Flagstaff address on her nominating paperwork and campaign finance report as her legal residence.

The Arizona Constitution requires legislators to live in the county they will represent for at least one year prior to election or appointment.
