    Answered . The bigger concern would be aiding a person that has a bench warrant. If the police have come to your home looking for him and you have lied to protect him, that can be an issue. In terms of the no contact order, that is to protect you. He will be in trouble for that, not you. He needs to turn himself in, because eventually he will get caught. I am not sure how long he has been hiding from his parole officer, but the longer he keeps this up-the greater penalty he will face.
