Editor of New Brunswick Today Allegedly Violates Restraining Order

August 12, 2014 · by RLF Attorneys · in

The editor of a popular New Brunswick news organization was recently arrested and charged with violating a temporary restraining order.
Charlie Kratovil, a city resident and editor of New Brunswick Today, now sits in county jail, awaiting a bail hearing before a New Jersey Superior Court judge.
Captain J.T. Miller of the New Brunswick Police Department told reporters that Mr. Kratovil was arrested on George Street at about 11 p.m. this past Wednesday after an incident earlier in the day.

After he was arrested for the temporary restraining order violation, Kratovil supposedly refused to be photographed and fingerprinted.
Kratovil’s attorney claims the incident arose out of a prior romantic relationship. Apparently, the woman filed the temporary restraining order because she and her husband kept seeing Mr. Kratovil in public.
The incident leading to Kratovil’s arrest occurred at Destination Dogs on Paterson Street, Morrell said.
Sean Monahan, publisher of New Brunswick Today, said the paper “stands 100 percent behind our editor.”
Only time will tell what will come of the Rutgers Journalism grad. For now though, you can bet he is not too happy to be in the press.
It is important to realize the impact that a temporary restraining order has in New Jersey. Simply trying to seek one against another person can tarnish the individual’s reputation.
Unless you are frightened that the person will physically or psychologically abuse, harass, or harm you, it is highly advised that you do not seek a restraining order.
With that said, if there are legitimate grounds for seeking a NJ restraining order and you are in danger, do so.
All too often, people will think that their abuser “didn’t mean it” or “really is a nice guy” and they do not do anything about the abuse. In such a situation, it is crucial that you take a stand and fight back.
