Yes. There is an automatic "mandatory restraining order" that is in effect from when the defendant is advised of rights at arraignment to the final disposition of any appeal. The defendant is automatically restrained from harassing, molesting, intimidating, retaliating against, or tampering with any witness to or victim of the acts charged. Violation of this mandatory restraining order can result in separate criminal charges. (§ 18-1-1001, C.R.S.).
