You may be in violation of a temporary injunction or an earlier injunction. This is a serious criminal charge that although a misdemeanor, could result in permanent negative effects on your future. A conviction will result in a criminal record that will be accessible by anyone with a computer and by law enforcement during encounters as simple as a traffic stop. You should consult with your attorney and explore all your defenses. Make certain you keep open your lines of communication and share your knowledge of the case as well as take the time to review the discovery.

If there was a temporary injunction issued at the time of the alleged violation (before the July hearing date), and you had notice of the temporary injunction, you can be charged with violating the injunction. The temporary injunction was an Order issued by the Court and you were required to abide by the Order. You should talk with an attorney. It's possible that your lawyer can talk the State into dropping the charge or can work out a reasonable resolution of the charge under the given circumstances.

Yes they can file violation of an injunction in the previous case. The subsequent denial does not operate to dissolve the previous order.
