Q: I have a problem where I had placed an order of protection against my ex. I at one point stopped taking my anti depressants and felt really lonley because I have bad depression and I had texted the defenent a few times before I called the police fopr violation. He contacted me first and all the other times. Will I serve jail time and all that because I made that mistake? I’m taking meds as prescribe and my depression is better.
A:David’s Answer: If the order was a “no contact” order, then you did violate it by contacting him. As to whether you’ll face actual jail time may depend on an assessment of the history of your case (& what the underlying charges are).
