Last week I represented charged with Indirect Criminal Contempt (ICC) as a result of an alleged violation of a Protection from Abuse order in Reading, Pennsyvania. My client was charged with confronting his estranged wife in their marital residence and engaging in a heated disagreement about bills and the mortgage.
The PFA that was in effect actually allowed for contact between the parties. Additionally, I had previously negotiated the condition that my client share the martial residence and reside in the guest room. The allegation here was that he had violated the provision that state he should not “abuse, harass, stalk or threaten physical violence against her.”
In this situation it was certainly fair to say that a disagreement took place. However, I was able to successfully argue that his actions did rise to level prohibited by the existing court order.
