Did anything happen as a result of the complaint? Were you advised to not contact them?

I just sent a short email 8 months later- just saying hi-how are you type of thing.- I never harrassed her- or said harmful comments...

And what happened after this, is what I am asking. You said she made a complaint. Who did she make it to?

Can you answer me?

I am happy too but need more information, as I asked about above.

Sorry she made complaint to the police and I have to go to court for it

Thank you. If there is an order in place, that prevents you from contacting her, the email could be a violation and get you in trouble. Even though this happened 8 months ago and the email was friendly, the issue is that you can not contact her and if you did, you could be charged and in violation of a court order. No contact means no contact, so as long as the order is imposed for, means you can not call, email, text, etc.
