The Court may choose not to release the accused from custody. The Court may still grant a no-contact order. This orders the accused not to contact victims, witnesses, or any other person identified in the order. A no-contact order covers all types of contact. These include letters or phone calls from or on behalf of the offender.
If a person has concerns about their safety or the safety of their spouse, children, or property, they should contact the police, the prosecutor’s office, or victim services. They will work with the person to understand their safety concerns and relay those concerns to the Court. The Court will consider the person’s safety concerns when deciding whether to release the other person.
