From the Daily News:
Ousted lawmaker Hiram Monserrate wants a judge to lift an order of protection and let him see the girlfriend he was convicted of roughing up two years ago.
The disgraced senator will be in a Queens courtroom Tuesday to tell Justice William Erlbaum he shouldn't be banned from getting close to Karla Giraldo.
Last year, Erlbaum found Monserrate guilty of misdemeanor assault but spared the former cop a more serious felony conviction in an alleged slashing attack on Giraldo.
Queens prosecutors say Monserrate shouldn't be near Giraldo - who testified in court that Monserrate didn't deliberately hurt her.
