When you are charged with violating a protective order or domestic violence injunction you are probably extremely nervous about what may result. No criminal charge should be taken lightly, especially the violation of a protective order or injunction. The court and the State will likely be unsympathetic to those that violate injunctions, especially when that injunction is related to a domestic violence case.
An injunction is commonly referred to as a “restraining order” and it prohibits or restricts your ability to have contact with another person, commonly the victim of a crime or act of domestic violence. A restraining order or injunction is usually granted to prevent threats of harm, physical violence, harassment, stalking or domestic abuse.
Violating an injunction, a first-degree misdemeanor, is a serious crime in the state of Florida and you can face up to 364 days in jail, twelve (12) months probation and a $1,000 fine.
