If you are charged for domestic violence again, it is likely that your probation will be revoked. As a result, you will be remanded to jail and arraigned on the new charges, as well as any other crimes the protected person may wish to raise.

In addition to violating your probation, it is also possible that you could face a Criminal Contempt Charge in the First Degree which is a Class E felony. This depends on the circumstance surrounding the present contempt charge as well as the facts involved in the first contempt charge.

Although it may not be easy at times, it is extremely important to obey the order of protection. Even if the protected party calls you on the phone, you must not answer or else you could face arrest. In this area, clearly, the law operates in a way which can be extremely problematic.
