Prosecuting restraining order cases can be quite challenging as there are various legal issues  that can arise during these cases. For instance, proving that the defendant had notice, determining which jurisdiction is the appropriate prosecuting jurisdiction, prosecuting multiple offenses, assessing whether the evidence is sufficient to prove a violation, what is a violation of the order versus a contempt charge, handling the various defenses, and sentencing considerations. In this thirty minute webinar, Carrie Newton from MDAA’s Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Unit will cover various topics related to prosecuting restraining order violations.
