    Ray McDonald Arrested Again for Violating Restraining Order.

    This guy is so stupid and just doesn't get it. He violated his restraining order and was arrested AGAIN for the second time in 3 days.

    Idiot, narcissist and completely unable to follow any laws. He needs to stay arrested and be given severe consequences for once.

    Edit: He and his lawyer claim that they didn't know about the restraining order. That is a bunch of BS people.

    When someone is arrested for domestic violence, a temporary restraining order (TRO) is issued AUTOMATICALLY for 30 days or less until things get sorted out, especially for a repeat offender.

    And it is served....meaning it is given to the offending party and/or their attorney BEFORE they are released from court at the time of their bail hearing.

    The victim then can petition the court for a permanent one before the TRO expires while the investigation ensues and the disposition of the case is reached.

    I'm sorry, that's something any lawyer would know.
    Since it is not a federal offense or heard in a feder court and is a state or a city law not all of them are the same state to state.

    The TRO may not be automatic where they are.
    I do have to admit that he was probably told by his lawyer to stay away. IF a TRO was not placed on him.

    I know your an advocate and I may be incorrect on Texas law, but I wanted you to be aware that not every court does it the same as your used to seeing it.

      This was not in Texas, this was in Santa Clara County, CA. My first job as an advocate was in Santa Clara County, so I am pretty familiar with the laws there. I worked in that county for 8 years after I graduated from Santa Clara University. OK, I agree the dispensation may be different in each place.

      Regarding how things worked in Santa Clara County, while the dispensing of a CPO/TRO may not have technically been automatic under statute, it basically was an automatic in practicality, particularly for repeat offenders like McDonald, regardless if charges had been filed before or not.

      But, let's assume for the sake of argument they aren't automatic.

      Nonetheless, McDonald was given a copy of the CPO/TRO as a condition of his bail. A CPO/TRO was placed on him. So you questioning that when you say, 'If one was not placed on him," doesn't make sense. If there wasn't one placed on him he would not have been arrested again for violating it.

      This is the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara website, and the page that deals with Criminal Protective Orders.

      FAQ's

      How will a defendant know there is a Criminal Protective Order?

      Answer: A defendant will be given a copy of the CPO while in court.

      So regardless of whether they are automatic, (yes, I will agree that not all states are the same), in his case he was given one, he received a copy of it while in court, and he violated it. Saying he was unaware that one was in place is a bunch of bull.

        SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Prosecutors in California have charged former San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears defensive tackle Ray McDonald with domestic violence and false imprisonment following allegations he assaulted his ex-fiancée while she held their 2-month-old child.

        The restraining order Ray McDonald is accused of violating was issued as a result of his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence and child endangerment.

        The Santa Clara County district attorney's office announced the charges Thursday. McDonald also is charged with child endangerment and violating a court order that he stay away from the victim. He is scheduled to be arraigned in the afternoon.

        If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to three years in prison.

        A call to McDonald's attorney, Steve Defilippis, wasn't immediately returned.

        Prosecutors say McDonald broke into the woman's bedroom around 4 a.m. on May 25 and assaulted her while his driver tried to stop him and she tried to get away. They say he eventually left the scene.

        "It is unconscionable and illegal for any woman to be trapped, whether it be behind a dining room table or in a relationship filled with fear and violence," prosecutor James Demertzis said in a statement.

        The 49ers released McDonald in December for a "a pattern of poor behavior." The Bears then signed McDonald to a one-year contract in late March, only to release him after his arrest in Santa Clara. He was arrested again later that week for violating a restraining order.
