If I have another case pending against the abuser, can I still get this protective order?

Yes. Receiving a sexual assault protective order does not prohibit you from also seeking other legal relief against the abuser.1 For example, the abuser can still be prosecuted for committing the sexual assault in criminal court even if you have a sexual assault protective order.
