By the way, if anyone is curious or confused about the dynamics of how one violates a restraining order, and the impact of stuff like accident and reasonable beliefs and all, I will point out what I often like to remind people to try when they are confused about the elements of a crime:  try reading the publicly available jury instructions for that offense!  They aren't always a model of clarity, but they generally shed some light in a more layperson-friendly way than statutes or case law.

So, here's the model instruction on violation of a restraining order:
