A person who violates a restraining order or injunction:

1. That is in the nature of a temporary or extended order for protection against domestic violence; and

2. That is issued in an action or proceeding brought pursuant to this title,

is guilty of a misdemeanor, unless a more severe penalty is prescribed by law for the act that constitutes the violation of the order or injunction.
