The history of domestic violence in snd of itself is sufficient for PO to deny it. It doesn’t matter if the DVO has expired nor does it matter that no contact was not a condition of your parole. It is strictly s subjective judgment call by your PO.

And stopped. they were both charged with receiving a stolen fire arm by convicted felon one was charged and sentenced to probation or 5 for 5. The other was hit with a pfo but both charged with the same thing when arrested.

The prosecutor has discretion to enforce the PFO or dismiss it or use it to help negotiate a plea deal....Read more »
