What happens if the abuser violates the WVRO?

If the workplace violence protective order is intentionally violated, the abuser can be found guilty of an invasion of privacy which is a Class A misdemeanor. It may be a more serious crime, a Class D felony, if the person has a conviction for violating the order in the past.*
