It is a direct violation of a court order. Virginia - Yes Kansas - Yes Texas - Probably not! Here in Texas you can drive without a license, run a red light and cause a serious car accident - and just get a court date to show up (if you have time, of course). (Sorry about the sarcasm - I'm a little frustrated that people get away with things like this here in Texas!)
