Thank you for writing a reply to my posting. Iunderstand all the 'sick puppy' stuff, believe me I've heard it many times before. I just wanted to ask you IF it was possible to take the restraining order OFF in a year or if I just shouldn't even bother. It was my parents choice, not mine (obviously) and I was wondering if he would get in trouble if I sent him a letter in the mail, as long as he doesn't contact me back? Please just let me know, I need your help...This is all very hard on me. One other question, can my parents try to take him to court for statutory rape once I am 18?? Can he go to jail for something that happened lets say a year or two ago if I was 18 and he was 23?
Thanks again, sorry for all the questions, I'm just confused...<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Okay, I'll say it one more time:
"The restraining order is a two-way street. It commands both he, and YOU, to stay away from each other. It makes no difference whether or not you turn 18."
You can't touch the restraining order. And, if you do send the letter, there's gonna be one unhappy judge in town (along with you).
Ah, but what the heck, you're gonna do it anyway.
P.S. Anticipating your next question: "How will they know I sent a letter?" That's easy. They keep records of all incoming and outgoing mail, etc. Even if you don't sign it, believe me, they'll know.
