Violations of a Restraining Order

Having a restraining order against you is not a crime, but violating that restraining order can result in criminal charges. In order to be convicted of a restraining order violation, the prosecution must show that a valid order was issued and in effect on the date of the alleged violation. They must prove that you knew the order was in effect and violated the restraining order.

An individual may be charged with a violation for:

  • Showing up at the protected individual’s home
  • Visiting their place of business
  • Coming within close proximity
  • New allegations of abuse or domestic assault and battery

The penalties for conviction of a violation include incarceration of up to 2.5 years. You will also have a criminal record, so it is important to consult with an experienced attorney to get advice for your situation and start planning your defense strategy. We offer a free consultation with our restraining orders violations attorney in Attleboro to discuss your legal options.

Developing Your Defense Strategy

There are a number of possible defense strategies for restraining order violations. For example, the contact may have been accidental, such as encounters in line at the grocery store. Other possible defenses include not receiving notice of the order, the order was expired at the time of the contact, or the contact did not violate the terms of the order. We can assess the circumstances of the encounter to recommend the best possible strategy for your defense.
