He sent her a Facebook request she accidently accepted it when she realized that she had she deleted him, no words were said to each other at all could either one of them get in trouble ?

Without knowing the exact terms of the no contact order, it is not possible to answer directly and accurately. As a general principle, however, truly accidental contact generally will not lead to trouble.

The state is taking these issue ver seriously and so if they get wind of this possible violation they will probably charge it. HOWEVER, proving it is a different story. Be prepared to get an attorney to help you.
