    Default Chances of Judge Dropping a Protection Order

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Arizona

    My sister was picking up her child from her ex (never married) and he slapped her across the face, choked her and punched her in the leg. He got arrested and she got a Protection order against him. Now he is protesting the PO. What are the chances the judge will drop the PO?

    Does he have any grounds to have it set aside? What's he claiming as the reason it should be dropped?

    He is claiming he was wrongfully accused which is NOT true he hit and choked her. Then mouthed off to the officer. We are waiting for the police report.

    His chances are between slim and none.

    Presumably, she had bruises/marks where he struck her?
