Though the actual violation of the restraining order is most frequently a misdemeanor charge, judges tend to treat these cases extremely seriously. Since most protective orders stem from an accusation or finding of domestic violence, a judge may see the violation of the order as continued harassment or violence and sentence the offender to jail or issue other punishments.
