My question involves restraining orders in the State of: Colorado.
My husband and I had a Temporary Restraining Order served on us last year by a crazy family member. The information/accusations made in the TRO were completely false. The family member sought out the TRO because of family drama, not because there were threats, etc. The family member did not show up for the permanency hearing, therefore the TRO was dropped. I have a few questions: 1) Can the family member be criminally prosecuted for perjury? 2) Is there another criminal charge that can be pursued if you can prove the person lied or used the courts/restraining order to harass? 3) has anyone successfully had a person charged criminally for such a thing?
OHHHH!! And I forgot to add that AFTER we were served with a TRO detailing how we threatened the family member and the family member feared for their life....the family member had a letter delivered to our home, asking us to contact them regarding how the family drama matter could be resolved.
