Penalties for Violation
Violating a restraining order is a misdemeanor punishable by $10,000 in fines and up to 9 months in jail. Note that to bring forward a charge for violating a restraining order, the state must prove:
- there was a legally-valid restraining order in effect against the individual;
- the individual knew that a restraining order was issued in their name; and
- the person engaged in activity specifically prohibited by the order.
In the absence of any of the above, you may have a solid defense against your allegations. An experienced lawyer can better help you craft the right defense in your restraining order case.
