Stalking Laws

Stalking is defined as the act of following, watching or contacting another person without consent in order to intimidate or harass him or her.

Stalking takes many forms:

  • In person
  • Over the phone
  • By mail
  • Via the computer.

You could be charged with stalking if you were previously served with a restraining order and then share the alleged victim’s contact information with others so they could intimidate/harass him or her on your behalf.

The sentence for a first offense stalking conviction, which is a misdemeanor, may include up to one year of incarceration and up to $1,000 in fines. A second or subsequent offense is classified as a felony, which is punishable by one to 10 years in prison and fines. The court could also mandate a psychological evaluation and issue a permanent restraining order for the victim.
