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

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?

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.

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).
