About Orders Of Protection
Also sometimes known as a restraining order, an order of protection is a court order that prohibits one person from contacting and/or coming within a certain distance of another person. These are typically issued at the request of an assault victim after harassment, physical assault or the threat of violence has occurred. The person named in the restraining order is bound by the protective order and risks arrest if they do not follow it.
When Orders Of Protection Are Violated
If an order of protection is violated, the person who violated the order will most likely be arrested and taken to jail. Courts view violations very seriously and will typically enforce severe penalties on the offender. However, violations are sometimes done unintentionally or unknowingly. For the person accused of violating the order, it is possible to provide context and explain why the order was violated to avoid penalties.
