Pauley Perrette, best known for her role as Abby Sciuto on the hit CBS crime drama NCIS, is in part responsible for her ex-husband sitting in a jail cell as of this past Tuesday morning. A restraining order the actress filed against Francis Shivers was violated by the DJ, resulting in some jail time.
Shivers was convicted back in 2010 of sending threatening emails to Pauley Perrette’s attorney. The actress was granted the restraining order at that time. Francis Shivers violated the restraining order in February of 2013, and was sentenced to 90 days in jail. Since he was already on probation for an unrelated conviction at that time, an additional 180 days were added to his sentence.
It sounds like Pauley Perrette’s ex is going to get off easy–and early, too–in light of present overcrowding in California, however. He will serve no more than 36 days and could be out of jail as early as tomorrow.

Shivers maintains his innocence.
Pauley Perrette hasn’t commented on the situation.

How would Pauley Perrette’s character Abby Sciuto deal with this situation? Would she run directly to Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) and ask him to pull some strings to have her ex locked up for a longer period of time?
