Building a Defense Against Your Stalking Accusations
A majority of individuals accused of stalking have relationships with the alleged victims. This could include a spouse or ex-spouse, a child, or even a roommate. When a restraining or protective order is in place due to domestic violence charges, an individual can become focused on explaining their side of the case to the victim, pursuing a meeting with them even though they can be arrested. Even a simple misunderstanding could lead to charges of stalking, making any previous criminal charges you have against you even more serious.
You could be facing the following penalties for stalking:
- A year in county jail
- Probation time
- Up to $1,000 in fines
- Additional penalties
If you are convicted of felony stalking, you could have to spend up to five years in jail and register as a sex offender. Stalking is consider the action of willfully following, harassing, or threatening another individual with the purpose of causing them to fear their safety.
In order to prove stalking, the prosecution must be able to demonstrate that you made a credible threat against the alleged victim. Since most charges come out of a frustrated or overly anxious family member or domestic partner, it can be proven that the accused made no real threat. You will need an experienced defense team on your side to help you fight these charges.
