Currently on pretrial release and I had contact with my “victim” ... worried that I could possibly be in trouble .. I called the clerks office twice and both times they could not find a no contact order..... but my “victim” is threatening and says there is ...
the judge never mentioned anything about a no contact order or anything of the sorts ... how can I find out if I have one ... or is a no contact order just automatically issued in cases such as these .... level 6 domestic dispute....
In Marion County, the Court issues a "no contact" order at the Initial Hearing in all domestic violence cases. Although the court states on the record that the order has been issued, it's easy to miss.
Regardless of what you hear from the court, it is advisable that you have no contact with the victim. It is likely to have a bad effect on your case.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
