Understanding the Offense You Are Facing
When we speak of stalking, we are talking about willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly following, harassing or cyber-stalking someone. It can take the form of physically stalking the person, or it can be accomplished by electronic means, such as:
- Online chat programs
- Regular mail
If the offender sends or relays words, images or any other communications that causes the recipient to suffer significant emotional distress, and especially without having any legitimate purpose to do so, he or she could be found guilty of stalking.
Whatever the form of stalking, if it includes threats to the extent the victim fears for his life or physical harm, you could be charged with a third-degree felony, which could mean up to five years in prison and fines of $5000.
