Criminal contempt is charged when a person violates a court order, most commonly an order of protection. Whether a criminal contempt charge is brought as a felony or misdemeanor depends on the specific circumstances and allegations. The various degrees of criminal contempt are defined in Article 215 of New York State Penal Law.

Criminal contempt is a serious and often complicated charge. However, there are legal defenses and mitigating factors that can be raised to avoid a criminal conviction and protect your rights.
