Stupid is, is what stupid does ...the other person involved should be charged/fined as well for allowing him to be in her space. The court found good reason to put conditions on him because of a domestic problem with her, so the condition should also be on her as well.. ! …Just saying..!

Happens all the time.
Once the police are called due to a bad day its out of the couples hands.
The police lay the standard "Domestic" charge and the courts put on the "Standard" do not be found with each other bail condition.

Their is nothing the couple can do about it, it's totally out of couples hands even if they reconcile.
There's no dropping the charges.
Once the police are called in the heat of the moment you essentially told the court system to run your life for a good long while.

Domestics are a major part of the courts and police work load and their bread and butter.

And it's for that reason, both should be charged/fined or what have you. The extra fine income can help offset the man hours a bit to handle domestics ..!

At one time the police could assess the situation and know the couple is just having a falling out and will be back together eventually and sent one to a friend or relative over night to cool off.

Now its just put it on the Domestic court load pile and let the courts deal with it for a year.
Meanwhile the couple has to sneak and meant each other by entering the back door at night until the courts are out of their lives for good.
I know the stiff laws have a purpose but that's in 1 of 10 case and now every case is thrown on the same pile.

crashed,

so according to you only 10% of domestic assault charges are actually dangerous?!?! I would love to know where you got those stats from. Any assault is dangerous regardless if a couple was having a bad day or there is a record of abuse happening.

*The male was on conditions to stay away from his ex-female partner and was found to be with her.*

Is there anything here stating that she was OK with him being with her? He may have followed her down a street, was seen entering her air space at a mall, may have broken into her residence & someone reported him...obviously SOMEONE was "made aware" of the situation. It doesn't mean she was a willing participant to him being around her.

If the cops get involved in your relationships, your doing it WRONG!!
