    Breaching an intervention order (or any other court order) is an offence in itself. Committing some other criminal offence on top of that, even if they arise out of the same facts, does not prevent the police from charging for the two different offences. However, charging someone is the police's discretion. They can choose whether to charge a person or not, and if so, whether to charge the person for both offences or just the more serious one.
