What happens if the stalking injunction is violated?
Violation of a stalking injunction is a crime, and you can call the police as soon as possible if the abuser violates the injunction. You can also file a contempt petition in the court that issued the stalking injunction.1
A violation of a stalking injunction comes under the criminal offense of stalking and would be a class A misdemeanor if it is the stalker’s first offense of stalking.2 If the stalker has previously been convicted of stalking, a felony, or meets certain other requirements, s/he may be guilty of a second or third degree felony.3
