Robbery with a weapon is normally something that involves prison time, so it is likely he could be going away for a long time, depending on the facts of his case. Considering his prior record and the fact that he served 4 month for pulling the gun on her and now is being charged with another crime involving a gun, he could be looking a serious prison time. The restraining order should remain in effect until lifted by the court but your friend could ask that the court extend it or even ask for tighter restrictions to be in place. If the RO is in place, it is likely being violated by the fact that they talk on the phone. If the court were to find out, he could be charged with violating the order and have to answer to the court. Thank you.

Thanks for the answer! It also says he is awaiting disposition at what is now schedule date for his sentencing. What exactily does awaiting disposition mean? And, if he accepted the plea last time in court-does that mean the judge has accepted the plea arrangement as well.
