I have a friend who has a restraining order on him by his girlfriend...I did call her and leave a voicemail that he wanted to make things up with her and hope they could mend their relationship - now I'm worried that my voicemail could do more harm against him, Would me telling her his feelings hurt him or cause an arrest warrant?
1 Answer from Attorneys
In Ohio, most restraining orders forbid the person restrained from contacting the other person, and will also forbid the restrained party from doing this through third persons.
However, if you acted on your own, without his knowledge, then this would be a defense to a contempt of court action that she might bring against your friend.
