If a Judge issued and ex parte domestic violence protective order, a violation would result in a class A-1 misdemeanor which is punishable by up to 150 days in jail. The magistrate has discretion in issuing an arrest warrant rather than a criminal summons. Typically if there is a domestic violence allegation, a warrant is issued. If there is in fact a warrant, he will be given a bond within 48 hours. The DVPO will stay in effect and most likely there will also be a not contact order as part of the terms and conditions of his release.
