Facts about order of protection violations in New York State
If you have been charged with Violating an Order of Protection, you need to carefully educate yourself about the charge against you and your situation. Consider these facts:
You can be charged for a seemingly innocent action — if an Order of Protection has been issued against you, actual physical violence or contact with the protected person does not have to occur in order for you to be charged. Simply speaking with the protected person or sending an email could be sufficient for a conviction.
The prosecutor may move forward regardless of what the victim says — even if the protected person wants to withdraw the complaint, the state may decide to prosecute you.
You may think that you will be exonerated if you can tell your side of the story to the judge — though there are two sides to every case, simply relying on the goodwill of the court is dangerous. You need an experienced advocate on your side, arguing your case using the facts and the law.
Violation of protection order cases can be won — with a proactive defense effort and skilled representation, it may still be possible to obtain a positive outcome in your case.
