No Contact Means NO CONTACT

For bond conditions and protective orders, a “no contact” conditions means absolutely no contact. Fortunately, some courts are re-wording such conditions to only cover “harmful or injurious” contact instead of all contact. But, when your bond conditions cover all contact, this includes electronic contact. In other words, no texting, phone calls, emails or direct messages (DMs) on social media. Unfortunately, some courts even include “tagging” a person in a photo or post. This is because a no contact condition is an objective, rather than subjective, conditions. This means that even if you do not intend for the “tagging” to convey information or contact the other party, it may still violate your conditions or protective order.

A violation of a bond or protective order means serious business. Not only would you face the consequence of the violation itself, multiple violations in a short period of time could mean a new charge! This new charge typically would be a Class A misdemeanor, but can be as high as a third degree felony. Multiple violations within a 12 month period would automatically be a third degree felony. Keep in mind, if charged as a felony, it would also be subject to felony enhancements meaning the possibility of higher punishment.
