Protecting Your Rights, Helping you Move Forward
Have You Been Arrested For Invasion of Privacy Following a Protective Order in Fort Wayne, IN and the Surrounding Areas?
In Indiana, violating the terms of a protective order or restraining order can result in being arrested and charged with the crime of Invasion of Privacy. I am a criminal defense lawyer who represents clients accused of restraining order/protection order violations in the Fort Wayne, IN area. These crimes are taken seriously, and many judges and juries tend to side with the person who filed the restraining order. That’s why I perform an exhaustive investigation to gather evidence that proves you did not violate the order or that there was no invasion of privacy.
The Penalties of a Restraining Order Violation
Invasion of Privacy is typically charged as a Class A misdemeanor, with penalties such as:
- Jail sentence up to 1 year
- Fines up to $5,000
If this is your second offense, you may be charged with a Class D misdemeanor, elevating the penalties to up to 3 years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines. A conviction could also limit your future employment and housing opportunities and impact your ability to retain custody of a child.
