No contact order

If there is a no contact order but the charges involving the people in the order are dropped, but the accused is still going to trial for other charges unrelated to the people in the no contact order, is the no contact order still in effect? Can it be removed since the charges have been dropped?

The accused needs to review his/her recognizance of bail / release conditions.  There are two possibilities:

1) A global release incorporates both sets of charges, in other words the contact prohibition would remain until both cases are complete

2) There are 2 separate sets of release conditions, in which case the no contact order should have been disposed of along with the charges

If the accused cannot read the release properly, s/he should get a lawyer to review it for them.
