No-Contact Orders Defense Attorney Rhode Island

Have You Been Arrested on a Rhode Island Criminal No-Contact Orders Charge?

If you’ve been incorrectly served with a no-contact or protective order, or have been falsely accused of violating one, contact a the Island law offices right away.

Definition of No-Contact Orders:

A no-contact order, as the name suggests, means an order that is issued by the court to protect victims of harassment or violence. These no-contact orders restrict communication, whether this means in-person, via a telephone, or some other electronic device.

Violating a no-contact order can come with even more dire consequences, even if the other party made the first contact.

Even a simple “hello” is considered a violation. These orders are mandatory with some crimes, such as harassment, stalking, domestic violence or sex assaults – all of which are crimes that John R. Grasso defend.

A few legal defenses that are plausible for violation of no-contact orders include:

·         False accusations –  the victim or reporter falsely accused the person of making contact.

·         Impersonation or False Identity –  It could be an instance of someone impersonating the defendant.

Violating no-contact orders should not be taken lightly, especially if the defendant is on probation for some other criminal offense.

If you’ve been accused of violating a protective order, contact a lawyer immediately. The Rhode Island Law Offices of John R. Grasso will investigate witnesses, testimonies, and other evidence, in order to provide the best possible defense.

Let’s talk. Contact John R. Grasso now.

What Are the Consequences of Rhode Island No-Contact Orders Charges?

Violation of No-Contact Orders is punishable in Rhode Island by:

  • Up to 1 year in prison, and/or
  • Up to $1,000 in fines

There’s an additional two-week confinement in prison at the time of arrest – in the state of Rhode Island. The original bail for the first-offense may also be revoked, once an arrest for violation for no-contact orders has been made.

During this time, it’s imperative to contact a lawyer to learn the best actions to take.

Furthermore, other penalties include participating in an intervention course, if the no-contact order was issued as a result of a domestic violence offense.
