Hello,Thank you for your question. Actually, a Protective Order issued under the statute you cited is not a "conviction" but merely a protective order, and therefore is neither a misdemeanor or a felony. On the other hand, if there was criminal conduct that occurred that gave rise to the protective order, for example an assault, then that would be charged under a different statute and that would be either a misdemeanor or felony depending on how it was charged and what the facts were.You can see the statute that you cited by going to: http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/cacode/PEN/3/1/7/6/s136.2Let me know if you need clarification or have any related follow up questions. I would be glad to assist you with those.
