Violation of a SCPO is a crime in Ohio. If the respondent violates the SCPO, contact the police. The respondent can be arrested if still in the area when police arrive. If the respondent is not arrested, make a police report and contact the SCPO office. You must then complete a form (motion for contempt) which is available from the SCPO office, to file a contempt for violation action against the respondent.
It will then be necessary for you to attend a contempt hearing where you must give testimony and present evidence regarding the violation of your SCPO. Your failure to attend the contempt hearing may result in the contempt motion being dismissed.
