What if the abuser violates the order?
If someone knowingly violates a sexual assault protection order, s/he could be committing a crime. Violating a sexual assault protection is a Class I misdemeanor if it is the abuser’s first offense. It is a Class IV felony if the person has a prior conviction for violating a sexual assault protection order.1 You can call 911 immediately and the police may arrest the abuser if s/he has probable cause to believe the abuser violated the order.2
