Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Good afternoon, I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. Get yourself a good criminal defense attorney. The fact that you were in a psychiatric hospital at the time of the offense may well be used to show that you lacked the mental capacity to form the intent to violate the court order, and which might well be in mitigation of the fact that you actually made the calls. This is known as an insanity defense, or a Diminished Capacity/Lack of Requisite State of Mind defense You will need an expert witness---a psychiatrist---to testify that you lacked the capacity to understand what you were doing was wrong at the time, and if that is the case, you have a defense to the felony charge. Please keep in mind that, even though you have already paid your deposit money over to JustAnswer, until you rate me highly for my service, I will not be paid for having assisted you with your questions. If you have additional questions, you may reply back to me using the Reply to Expert link and I will be happy to assist you further until your questions have been answered to your satisfaction. I wish you the best in your future. Doug
