A: If you filed for a protective order on your own, and it was granted, then when the judge granted the order it would be stated on the record how long the court order was good for.

If it was a protective order that was granted as part of a criminal domestic violence case, and the protective order will be valid for the Longs probation is going on. Do you know how long the case going forward for, you can always call the District Attorney's Office, or check with the court criminal Clerks Office at the county with this occurred.

In either case, if you want a protective order to be rescinded or modified, you have to go before a judge if it's to do it before it expires on its own.

A: Sex with a minor is a crime, as minors cannot legally give consent. The DA decides whether to bring or dismiss charges. His sentence depends on the facts and his priors. You can be subpoenaed as a witness by the DA. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney such as myself. You can read more about me, my credentials, awards, honors, testimonials, and media appearances/ publications on my law practice website, www.AEesq.com.
