Can they still violate him and make him do time?
The answer is to this yes, even if she no longer wants him in jail. Until the protective order is dissolved, the authorities have the right to act on that protective order. In most cases, the courts look at each individual order on its own merits. This means if a couple has a history of issues, or if the male has a criminal history that includes crimes of violence, they may not lift the order, even though the female wants the order to be lifted.
In most cases, if the person that sought the order goes to the court and requests to withdraw the order, then the court will do so, however.
