Spousal No Contact Order No Violence
My question involves criminal law for the state of: Washington
A friend was recently charged and jailed for Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, Controlled Substance, possession and nothing more. He was arrested while riding the bike due to a traffic stop.
He was booked into the county jail.
Upon his release he was informed that he was to have no contact with his spouse. That there was an order.
Here's the thing, there has never been any kind of violence between the two, no problems like that whatsoever. The charges don't have anything to do with them as a couple. There is no known reason for the order. The only thing that makes sense is that the officer or DA wants to try and flip his wife and get her to testify against him or something.
Is this legal?
If you are a reasonable person and I can convince you, then a reasonable argument can be made.
