I am victim of domestic abuse. I did not know it's a violation to have third-party contact me during 72-hour no contact. This occurred several months ago, twice, one and two days after the incident. Can they still be charged? I just discovered it's a violation today.
You should retain an attorney to investigate this. You are not telling us enough here to help you. 3rd party contact violations usually refer to the defendant reaching out to the alleged victim through a third party, which is a violation. The opposite scenario, where you reach out through a third party to the defendant, may not even be a violation for you but might get the defendant into horrible trouble. Your attorney, on the other hand, is under no restrictions and is free to contact everybody, so that's who should be doing this, not you.
