The EPO is civil and unless you were charged with criminal charges at the time. The epo should be all you face. However, if you violate the epo, the charges will be criminal and you could have to face them as well.

Q: Hi, I live in Kentucky and I was arrested and my car was impounded. I had to pay over $300 to get it back and pay fines.

The officer was fired for using unnecessary force (not just on me) and lying on the police report, and when I went to court all charges were dropped. Should they have reimbursed me for all of the money I paid? Also is a male officer allowed to use force on and arrest a female citizen?
