What is the name of your state? Iowa
My husband and I were having an arguement and my son came down stairs with a skate board tool as a weapon and said "If you touch my mother I'll kill you" to my husband. At that I time I told everyone that we all needed to take a time out, and told my son to go to his room, I went to my room and my husband stayed downstairs. About 10-15 minutes went by and all was quiet so I left my room to go downstairs to get a drink and just as I was walking out of my bedroom door, my husband was walking in.
I saw that he had a knife in his hand so I said, "What the hell is that, what are you some kind of a phyco?" His response was that it was for his own protection. I instinctly went to the phone and called the police bcuz it threw me off guard and scared me.
When the police arrived I told them that I wasn't physically assaulted but just freaked out bcuz there had been a previous incodent where he did put a knife to my throat, so I guess I just reacted bcuz of the prior incodent. He went to jail for Domestic Abuse and displaying a weapon.
This happened on 11/23/05. About a month later I had not gotten any papers regarding the no contact order and me and my husband reconsiled and were trying to work things out, so he had been staying at the home by my request.
Last week my husband got really drunk and was with a friend and had damaged his car out of anger and his friend brought him here. Well I wouldn't let him in the house bcuz I knew that he would continue the damaged on property in the home and the children were home. He was yelling and being disruptive outside and wouldn't leave. I told him to leave or I would call the police to have him removed from the property bcuz of his behaviour, but he continued so I call the police.
I was sopeoned to go to court on his violation of the no contact order and it said it was to prove probable cause.
Will I go to jail for violating the no contact order if I admit that I have had contact with him?
The protective order wasn't signed by the judge until 1/5/06 & I just received it in the mail this last wed. but the incident happened on 11/23/06?
