My boyfriend and I have a no contact order through his Probation officer. It is listed as one of his rules of probation. I am also on probation, but it its not listed in my rules that i cannot have contact with him.
The no contact order was put in place after I was drinking at his house and i ended up leaving and getting stopped. Because I ended up confessing that i was coming from his house he was charged with Adult contribute and consumption of alcohol.
We have been in contact through calls and texts despite the no contact order and he has been recently arrested and put on a hold, so I have no idea what is going on with him or what exactly he's getting charged with. I have an idea that it is most likely a Drunk Driving as his car was left on the road, according to his family.
No, you can't get in trouble, because it's not against your rules. And there aren't any standard rules of supervision that would prohibit you from the contact either.
But that's not the problem. The problem is your boyfriend is prohibited from having contact with you, and he will get in trouble for it.
Strictly technically, it is probably not a violation of your rules to have contact with him, but I would advise you not to. Probation and Parole usually hands out a list of about 24 rules for you to sign. Look at your rules, I believe there is something in there about other conduct that might be a prohibited. And if your agent discovers that you are implicated in his violation of his rules, then you will likely be prohibited from contacting him going forward.
You cannot get in trouble, but he sure can, it would bring about a violation of probatin most likely, to add to whatever newer charges he has.

So, yes, YOU can get into trouble for having contact with your boyfriend. Your boyfriend will ALSO get into trouble. I you truly care about your boyfriend, you would be doing him and yourself a big favor by staying away until there is no longer a rule in place prohibiting contact.
