Breach of a Violence Restraining Order or a Family Violence Restraining Order
This offence involves a person who is bound by an restraining order, breaching a condition of that order. The offence carries a maximum penalty of $6000 or 2 years imprisonment, or both. Where a person is convicted of a third breach within a 2-year period, a court must impose a penalty that includes imprisonment, unless satisfied that it would be clearly unjust given the circumstances of the offence and the person is unlikely to be a threat to the safety of the person protected by the restraining order or the community generally.
Misconduct Restraining Order
A Misconduct Restraining Order (MRO) is generally issued to a person when they behave in a manner that is intimidating or offensive and may lead to a breach of the peace or, may damage property. A person who is bound by a MRO and who breaches that order commits an offence which carries a maximum penalty is a fine of a $1000 fine.
