Contempt of Court

When the court issues an order, it has the authority to compel an individual to obey that through a contempt action. Essentially the judge can command a defendant to report to court if they have disobeyed the terms of the order. If an individual is found to be in willful violation of the order, the court can impose a 10-day sentence per violation, which can be served consecutively for up to 180 days. In other words, you could be forced to spend 6 months in jail for disobeying a judge.
