General Criminal Defense Information

Topic: Injunction Violation Criminal Defense

An injunction is a protective order filed by one individual against another. Injunctions are often referred to as a protective order, restraining order, or an order of protection. An injunction basically serves three purposes.

  1. To provide protection of one person from the protection or repeat actions of another.
  2. To inform the individual named in the injunction of the stipulations of the protective order outlining the limitations they have regarding the other party or parties.
  3. To provide official documentation of a pattern of history which may be used in a court of law in the event the injunction has been violated.

Because injunctions are often associated with domestic violence or the safety of another, the courts take violations of an injunction very seriously. Law enforcement will typically act swiftly when investigating an accusation of an injunction violation, as the safety of our citizens are the primary objective of law enforcement officers.

An individual may be accused of violating their probation as a result of a Technical Violation or a Substantive Violation.
