Do I stand a chance of not getting the restraining order granted?
My former friend, NOT AN EX-BOYFRIEND, REQUESTED a restraining order against me for harassment. 3 years ago harassed him with numerous e-mails and calls from a blcked number, which was true. But the last time I called him and emailed him was 3 years ago and I never called nor email him again. Our friendship ended 5 years ago. And I never wrote him any threatening insulting emails like he did to me.
What evoked him to request a restraining order is Only recently I I mailed a letter addressed to his mother, NOT HIM, letting his mother know what his son did to me. That he used me only to do sexual things and didn't want to talk to me anymore because he got what he wanted. I did not communicate with him. In the letter I threatened to call the police if I did not receive an apology letter from them within 2 weeks. They got scared and called the police and requested a restaining order, afraid I would come to their house and cause trouble since they know I already know their address.
I now have a hearing next week. The only thing I have to help me are threatening emails from him saying how he wants me to kill myself already, and calling me names like a betch and **** you. . He wrote, " I can't wait for the day you die so I can **** on your grave. His emails were not in response to any email I sent hom. Because the last time I emailed him or called him was a year before he sent the emails, and he sent them out of the blue.

Obvious need for him to have a restraining order. Why the heck you're mailing his mother something when you last called and emailed him 3 years ago makes no sense. You're up to nothing constructive.
You likely should just agree to the order and walk away.

The letter to his mother WAS intended for him and you KNOW it. Based on YOUR side of the story, which we ALL know is biased, they BOTH have sufficient grounds for a restraining order against you.
What you claim prompted him to request a restraining order is ALSO grounds for claims of libel and attempted extortion. Consider it a GIFT the letter to his mother isn't Exhibit A in YOUR CRIMINAL TRIAL.
Note: Get your timeline straight. In your first paragraph, you claim you haven't e-mailed him in 3 years. In your last paragraph, you claim you e-mailed him 1 year before he responded to your letter to his mother. The TWO YEAR discrepancy in your story won't help you.

Anyone who goes on for that long needs a restraining order.
His needs to upheld and yours denied.
