    To me OCD means Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. In California if you violate a civil restraining order it is a contempt of court and you could give 5 days in jail for each violation.

    I think you mean ACOD which means Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal- which means that it is not a plea of guilt- the case is adjourned usually for 6 months ( one year if it is a drug case ) and if you do not get re arrested for anything during the 6 months then the case is automatically dismissed on the 6 month court date ( or 1 year if drug case ) without having to appear on the court date. If you mean violation of an order of protection there may or may not be jail time. The sentence is up to the court. You should hire an attorney to negotiate a favorable plea bargain, hopefully with a sentence of no jail.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "OCD" because it cam mean multiple things including "Obsessive Compulsive Disorder." I need context. One may or may not get jail for violating a protection order. It depends on the facts of the violation and the defendant's criminal history.
