No Contact Order Violation

HarassmentThere are numerous reasons why a no contact order might be in place and the specific conditions of each can vary. If you have received notice of a no contact order being placed against you, it is extremely important to abide by it. The first key step is to read closely the order to know what exactly is going on because if you violate it, you could be facing a gross misdemeanor charge, and in some instances, a class C felony.

Whether your no contact order was issued due to a criminal case or is actually a restraining order, or an anti-harassment order, it is important to follow it. When the order says no contact, it means no contact in any form. This includes physical contact, phone contact, txt messages, email, and communication through third parties. This holds true even if the other party initiated the contact. If the person sends you an email, do not respond to it. If they call you, do not pick up or immediately hang up when you realize who it is. The order remains in place until the judge removes it not when the “victim” decides they want to talk with you.

A violation of a no contact order can be charged as a felony if the “contact” was actually an assault. This means, for example, an assault 4° which would normally be a gross misdemeanor is now a felony. You can also face a felony if you have had two or more prior convictions for violating the no contact order.

Whether you are being accused of violating a no contact order or an individual is trying to get any form of no contact order placed against you, whether it be an anti-harassment order, a restraining order, or a sexual assault protection order, it is important to take it seriously and fight it immediately.
