No contact means no contact both ways

If you have a no-contact order against someone, you probably shouldn’t bail them out of jail and take them back to your apartment.

And, at least in this Kitsap County Superior Court case, if you’re the culprit you shouldn’t go back with the victim.

A 22-year-old Bremerton man was in court June 30 arrested on a warrant from Dec. 16, 2022. Bail was set at $150,000. He faces violation of a court order, fourth-degree assault and second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm. If convicted he faces 10 years in prison and $20,000 in fines.

Court papers say she picked him up from jail last Dec. 11, despite the court order. She said she knew that was wrong so on Dec. 16 she called deputies. She mentioned she had a loaded 9mm Glock handgun on top of the refrigerator.

When the deputies arrived he was found not too far away. He said they had been living together since he got out of jail, and he “believed things could work out between them.”
