I would like to get a criminal no contact order lifted for my exhusband. He was sentenced to 10 years for rape 2nd w/o consent & possession of deadly weapon in commission of a felony. I was the victim. Through his family I have learned of his self improvement endeavors & since this crime occurred while he was under the influence of drugs & alcohol, & he has since been put on medications appropriate for his mental issues I feel perfectly safe & would like to be able to see him & work on rekindling our relationship. He has a no contact order with me given him by the superior court judge as part of his sentence
The most effective way would be for him to file a motion for sentence modification, and for you to notify the assigned prosecutor that you wish to have contact with him.
You can have your husband file a motion to modify the sentence but I feel your case will fall flat. You were raped by this man with a deadly weapon. You would need a medical professional to bolster your testimony, so I suggest seeking a therapist as soon as possible. This is an awful crime, take time to consider what you are asking.

He could hire an attorney to file a motion to modify the no contact condition of his sentence. Due to the serious nature of the conviction the attorney will need to collect proof of his treatment and possibly have him evaluated by a therapist or doctor who specifically treats people convicted or charged with similar sex offenses. If the therapist or doctor can provide beneficial mitigation the attorney may have him write a report and attach it to the motion. This can be quite expensive. This conviction requires your ex-husband to register as a sex offender and he'll be monitored by a probation officer who specifically handles similar probationers. Judges aren't usually inclined to modify sentences for these types of cases but it is possible depending on the circumstances. He should consult an attorney.
