If I Don't want my restraining order extended.... Why is the DA extenting it anyway?

Q: My ex broke a window in my apt... and i called 911. he got arrested & i got a RO. My RO expires on the 29th, I do not want it to continue. I never asked for it to begin with, but the DA says she's extending it and I have no say in the matter.

A: David's Answer: The DA has an independent right to proceed, as s/he represent the State, not you. That said, I encourage you to follow-up with a Dutchess/Westchester Co. criminal law lawyer.  -- David Bliven, Westchester Domestic Violence lawyer (
