Can I get in trouble for violation of no contact if someone tells on us?

Asked about 1 year ago - Tacoma, WA

Theres a open case of DV, state put a no contact order. The victim who is over 18 parents called the prosecuting attorney and told them I violated the order by phone and facebook. Can I be violated for them calling and not the victim?

    Answered . If there is evidence then yes, definitely. You are supposed to obey the court order regardless of whether the "victim" wants to contact you or not.

    Answered . Yes, if there is probable cause that you violated the NCO, you may be arrested and charged with a new crime. It doesn't matter where the probable cause comes from (victim or someone else).
