Defending Your Rights When You've Been Accused of Violating Restraining Orders
If you have committed an act of, or been accused of committing an act of, domestic violence, your spouse, family or significant other may take out a restraining order against you. This will restrict your movements and interaction with this person. If you violate that order by making contact, stalking or committing another act of domestic violence, you will be subject to the penalties for violating the restraining order as well as those for the accompanying crime. These penalties can mean up to 18 months in prison and up to $25,000 in fines in addition to the penalties for the act you committed that caused the violation.
