Protection orders and no contact orders are a tool victims of domestic abuse can utilize to get away from their abusers. However, it’s not uncommon for those to be violated. In early March, 22-year-old Jackson Phillips was charged with violating a no contact order issued to him after he allegedly strangled 20-year-old Randi Gerlach in December.
