Q: Petitioner is contacting me would that be her violating the no contact order?
Leland Hulbert
Leland Hulbert answered on Mar 3, 2022

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.

Q: No contact epo Petitioner is contacting the respondent.? What do I do..?
Leland Hulbert
Leland Hulbert answered on Mar 3, 2022

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.

Q: I got charged with criminal littering it’s a first offense

If I go to court just myself will I be okay and not go to jail because I can’t afford a attorney?

Scott Scherr
Scott Scherr answered on Mar 2, 2022

It is unlikely that you would go to jail for this offense especially if you have no prior record. An attorney may be able to get the charge dropped in exchange for community service. You should reach out to the Public Defender if you cannot afford private counsel.

Q: I got charged with criminal littering in Kentucky it’s a class a misdemeanor and it’s my first offense will I go to jail
Leland Hulbert
Leland Hulbert answered on Mar 2, 2022

It is extremely rare that he will go to jail on an offense like this with no record. The only way you could risk jail is if you missed a court date. If you hire an experienced attorney they should be able to help you get through this process fairly quickly.
