Violation of a Civil Protective Order (PC 273.6)?

If one violates a civil protective order issued to protect another person, including elder adults, children, former employees or school employees, the judge can sentence the violating party to up to a year in county jail for a first offense or up to three years in state prison (to be served in county jail). If the restrained person purchases or obtains a firearm, even if the weapon is inoperable, that also can be punished as a felony with up to three years in state prison (in county jail).
