My question involves restraining orders in the State of: Colorado
My husband and I got in an argument that lead to the police becoming involved...I did not want him to be arrested or charged with any crime as we had been drinking and it was simply an argument that got out of control...no one was injured...I am the supposed victim in the case and had been waiting to receive the paperwork, so I may respond with a victim impact statement, however, the paperwork came addressed to my husband, so I gave it to our friend to give to him (since we are not allowed to communicate). My friend told me that the paperwork was actually suppose to be for me, however, it was all addressed to my husband, and under the section which shows the name of the person that should be protected it had the incorrect first name. My name was not indicted in the paperwork anywhere.
If I was a "true" victim of domestic violence and my husband was a person who would retaliate (which he is not) he could come over and attack me and would not be breaking the restraining order because it is not my name on it...I am waiting for the second round of paperwork to see if it comes with the incorrect information, or if they possibly changed it....
Could this error on the court get the DV charges dropped, along with the restraining order?
