What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
in california, what is the punishment for violating a restraining order with a 3yr joint suspension over your head?
we are able to swap the baby back and forth but that is it. dad brought me baby and left. he stayed nearby because a neighbor was harrassing me, throwing eggs at the apt and dad was concerned about our wellbeing. a neighbor called and reported arguing (it was not us) the police found dad nearby, not in my apt or around me and arrested him for violation of restraining order. no violence occured. it was a "peaceful contact swap" with the child.
dad just got out of jail, was in there for one yr county time for failure to report police contact. the original case is dv related 2 yrs ago.
dad has a 3 yr joint suspension over his head.
online it says his charges are a misdemeanor.
again, no violence occured, he was not around me.
What will be his punishment?
What can we do in this situation?
