They can only be arrested in court if there were prior orders in place on another case or a previous EPO. If they are just being served with the paperwork and had no knowledge of the restrictions they cannot be arrested for only violating those restrictions.
Yes. Typically in these type of cases a competency evaluation is performed and once the results are in there is a competency hearing. Both the prosecution and defense argue their position and the judge ultimately decides the issue.
If they were never served at all then they had no notice of the restrictions. If they have a prior EPO or DVO that has restrictions in place and they violated a warrant can be issued for their arrest based on a new criminal charge of violating an EPO/DVO. An EPO or DVO by itself is a civil case but...Read more »

You can hire a lawyer and have them present proof to the Court that the vehicle was registered in someone else's name. You should be able to get some sort of record from Ohio Department of Transportation.

Fights happen all the time among young children and the police don’t always file charges unless there are weapons used. Your only other option is to go to the county attorneys office with witnesses and proof and try to file charges through the Warrant Intake process. You could also file a civil...Read more »
I don’t want to disclose details, I’m just wondering if she can chose to not have them filed for her, or if she decides she does not agree can her guardian still file on her behalf if she is capable of making the decision?
If charges have been filed the victim in a case cannot decide by herself to have them dismissed. It’s up to the prosecutor. Input from the victim will always be taken into consideration by the prosecutor and obviously if the case is taken all the way to trial and the victim testifies to help the...Read more »
Parole is never guaranteed and it depends on many factors other than just your charges. Your chances of parole are good if you have no prior record, you are not convicted of violent offenses and you have had good behavior and taken advantage of classes in prison.
What are you asking. If it’s just shoplifting and it’s a low amount typically they would not ask you to do 10 days. They would also not come to your home and break in to try to arrest you. If there are more circumstances or a higher dollar amount those steps are possible. I would hire an...Read more »

The only person that is under a court restriction in an EPO case is the respondent. You can use these attempts to contact you at a hearing but you should not contact her back under any circumstances. If you hire an attorney they can contact her.
If you are the petitioner and you are being contacted by the respondent and you can prove the contact you need to go to the county attorneys office or call the police. If there is an active EPO and a person is contacting you that is a new misdemeanor charge of violating an EPO.
