Did you apply for a Restraining Order - or was it placed as an Order of the Court via a request by the DA?
Thanks ~ Michelle
Then the DA is correct. Unfortunately, you will need to go to court on the matter for it to be resolved. You can try to talk to the DA again and see if the harassment charge can be dropped or placed on an "inactive" docket - meaning if there are no further incidents within like 18 months then the matter will be fully closed - but if something else happens in that time then they will move forward on all matters - if they agree to place it inactive then they can seek to have the PO removed.
