Bail for Violation of a Protective Order


What Is a Violation of a Protective Order in Texas?

Violating a protective order is a serious matter in the State of Texas with potentially serious repercussions. Violating the order implies that you have disobeyed a direct order from a judge, typically in the case of a previous stalking or domestic violence charges. Though it is only considered a misdemeanor, there are additional penalties beyond the typical misdemeanor punishments.

Penalties for Violation of a Protective Order

If someone has filed a protective order against you, you must keep a distance from them. You may have had a protective order filed against you for a number of reasons, including: committing family violence, an act related to human trafficking, sexual assault, stalking, possessing a firearm, tampering with a GPS, or communicating in a threatening manner to another person. The police can arrest you without a warrant if an officer has probable cause to believe you threatened, assaulted, or went near a person protected by a restraining order. They can make an arrest based on statements, physical evidence from the victim, or from your own admissions. If you’ve been charged with violating a protective order, it’s completely legal for you to be held in jail without bail as long as the judge determines that you might be a threat to the safety and well-being of the victim.

When crimes related to assault or stalking are committed and are in violation of an existing protective order, then they’ll be treated as a third-degree felony. This can carry a penalty of two to 10 years in a state penitentiary and a fine as much as $10,000. If you commit two or more violations of a protective order within a 12-month period, your charges can be combined into a single third-degree felony knows as a Repeated Violation of Protective Order. Furthermore, if you’ve violated the terms of a protective order and are not yet a U.S. citizen, you will be subject to deportation.
