The Consequences of Violating a Judicial Order
Violating a court order can result in additional criminal consequences or elevated charges. This is considered interference with a judicial procedure and may negatively impact the outcome of your domestic violence case. Often, events that are considered violations of an order of protection or harassment injunction are not dramatic or violent, but a conviction can have serious penalties.
A conviction for interfering with judicial proceedings may result in:
- Up to 6 months in jail
- A $2,500 fine
- Up to 3 years of probation
- Anger management
- Other mandatory counseling
Violations can be minor and may not even be initiated by the defendant in a domestic violence case. For example, if the judicial order forbids any contact and the plaintiff calls you to ask if you are picking up the kids at school, you are in violation of the judicial order by even taking the call. Any interaction or communication can put you at risk of additional charges.
