What types of criminal convictions could qualify me for a permanent restraining order?

If the respondent is convicted of, pleads guilty to, pleads no contest (“nolo contendere”) to, forfeits bail to, or is a juvenile who is adjudicated “delinquent”1 of any of the following crimes or the attempt to commit any of these crimes, you can qualify for a permanent restraining order:

Note: You can also get a permanent restraining order if the abuser was charged with a criminal sexual conduct offense, but it was later pled down to “assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature” or if the abuser was charged with a domestic violence offense and it was later pled down to “assault and battery” or “assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.”2
