signed12month consultant non-compete, moved to different position 1 year ago, is non-comp valid?

Upon hire I signed a "Consultant Non-Compete Agreement" for a 12 month period upon termination. I have since moved into a non-consulting position (same company) for over 1 year.
Does the consultant non-compete still hold? I have done 0 consulting for this company in the past 15 months.
Please advise and thank you!

I can't really answer this question without looking at the specific language of the agreement you signed, and to see what you signed when you moved into the non-consulting position. I'm assuming the non-consulting position was as an employee. I can't imagine the company would have consultants sign non-competition agreements, but not employees.
