When a NJ Domestic Violence Restraining Order is issued against you, you violate the protections the Court gives to the protected party when you contact them. In some cases, the plaintiff wants to dismiss against you, and is not trying to 'set you up' by trying to contact you. It does not matter if they contacted you first, or that you were responding to a contact they initiated. The protected party cannot waive the protections of the RO, only the Court can dismiss the Order. If you respond to the attempted communication of the plaintiff, you will be charged with a Criminal Contempt of Court and even if the RO is later dismissed, you can still be convicted. In other cases, the protected party is trying to 'set you up' and by responding to their contact, you expose yourself to not only the evidence that is the basis that the Court relied on to issue a Temporary Restraining Order, but the fact that you violated that Order by having contact with the person the Court protected. The combination of these two types of evidence makes it much more likely that the Court will issue a Final Restraining Order against you. The sentencing range for a Criminal Contempt of Court depends on the grade of the offense, which can be up to a 4th degree crime and a sentence of up to 18 months in prison. The plaintiff cannot dismiss the criminal charge, only a prosecutor can recommend dismissal to a Court and the Judge is not bound by the prosecutor's dismissal recommendation. Do not contact means exactly that...NO CONTACT. Stop making your case worse by violating the Order, or risk both the restrictions and consequences of an FRO; and, a criminal conviction.

...the cops had no reason to stop me, I knew where I was going and this was quicker than waiting in all that traffic... When the traffic control device says DO NOT DO THIS (think Traffic Light, Stop Sign, etc.); or, in obvious areas that are not intended for a MV to be operated on (think Stairways and Pedestrian Walkways) you give the police the probable cause basis to stop you when you commit those actions and violate the restrictions. During the stop, anything the police see, smell, hear, or otherwise observe can be used to justify a further investigation of what you were doing. Any evidence of illegal activity can be seized and used as evidence to convict you of MV or criminal offenses you are later charged with. Anything you say can be used against you, even without Miranda warnings having been given, as those protections are to prevent custodial interrogation without you being advised of your constitutional rights. During a street-level encounter, you are not in custody until you are arrested. Impatience behind the wheel, and 'taking a short-cut' or not 'waiting like everyone else' can lead to you being stopped and cited for MV violations and criminal offenses.
