Q: Who do I contact about dropping a no contact order?
I am the victim of a 1st degree sexual abuse case. The man is getting released soon, there was an automatic no contact order when he was arrested and it is part of his parole, I have contacted my states probation and parole, they told me I need to contact my county attorney. I did, she said I need to call the commonwealth attorney in my state and she told me I needed to contact my county attorney. I have no idea who I need to call about this. I was 15 when this happened and I am 20 now.
A: You would need to contact the entity that prosecuted the original case, either the Commonwealth Attorney or the county Attorney. The clerks office can tell you which one prosecuted the man.
