Aggravated Stalking Attorney in Athens, GA
What Are Georgia’s Aggravated Stalking Laws?
Unlike a standard stalking charge, aggravated stalking is classified as a felony offense, punishable by prison time and other stringent penalties. You can be arrested for aggravated stalking if you violate a protective or restraining order by contacting the alleged victim or putting him or her under surveillance. In fact, no threats are necessary to be charged with this crime; just the violation of the order is enough.
The sentence for aggravated stalking can include between one to 10 years in prison and fines up to $10,000. The court may mandate a psychological evaluation and will often issue a permanent restraining order against you.

Those found guilty of aggravated stalking can also experience a number of consequences as the result of being labeled a convicted felon. Obtaining certain professional licenses, applying for jobs and even renting housing can become much more difficult or even next to impossible with a felony on your record.
Fortunately, challenging an aggravated stalking charge or getting it reduced to a lesser offense could be possible. Proving aggravated stalking means taking into account a series of behaviors, and not just one incident. If your criminal defense attorney can establish that the alleged victim never acted in a way that showed fear or intimidation, this could help your case.
