What may happen now? I violated a restraining order and I was arrested.

Riverside, CA |

5 months into the set order due to expire 9-18-13 The petitioner called me and said he missed me we started seeing each other again. I bought into his lies that he was sorry, he was mad at me, and that he wouldn't notify police. I trusted and I loved this man. Then I saw him with another woman. I now am out on bail set for arraignment in Oct. I got served with a request to the courts for permanant restraining order. Do I need a lawyer?

Yes, you have been charged with a crime and therefore you should have an attorney handle your case. An attorney will be able to review the reports and discuss any possible defenses with you.
