New York Family Court denied a divorcing wife an order of protection against her husband, as reported in the New York Law Journal on August 5th, 2011.

The wife petitioned the courts seeking an order of protection in an effort to prevent her husband from contacting her. The wife claims that the husband continues to contact her through phone calls, text messages, letters, and using third parties. At this time the husband is serving out a 28 years to life sentence for murder.

The woman was denied the order of protection on the grounds that there was no “immediate and ongoing danger.” The husband had been placed into solitary confinement after the officials had learned he was harassing his ex-wife.

The court stated in their reasoning that since he was isolated there was no immediate threat, and there was no deterrent to prevent him from violating the order of protection because he is already incarcerated for a long period of time.
