The person who had the no contact order was freely speaking to the person she was seeking protection from. Sure sounds like "No contact orders" are given out willy nilly and have become a joke. I feel bad for the guy, especially if she agreed to have contact with him. Thank god our justice system is infallible and an example for the world. If only they knew how disgusting it really is.
