The Situations In Which You Could Be Charged With Stalking
Whether you are being accused of stalking by an ex or someone you were
casually dating, he or she may file a complaint because of phone calls,
driving by a house or workplace, or any other form of behavior they see
as harassment. Even continual contact via the Internet may be seen as
cyberstalking and can cause someone to complain. A misdemeanor charge
may be handed down for these actions but often stopping this conduct and
promising to stay away can be enough to have the charges dismissed.
You may be charged with a felony stalking charge if:
- There is a no-contact order violation
- If you have been convicted of stalking within the last 7 years
- If you intend to cause emotional distress, fear of death or physical injury
- If you possess a deadly weapon when contacting the complaining witness
- If the victim is under the age of 16
A felony stalking charge can also arise from a domestic violence situation,
where an ex-spouse or partner wants to enforce limited or no contact between
the parties. If you have been accused of violating a restraining order,
our firm can ensure that any underlying motivations, such as a custody
dispute, are brought to light.

The statute for stalking is very subjective and our firm will use all the
facts to negotiate a reduction in the charges down to a misdemeanor or
have the matter dismissed altogether. In many of these cases, there is
no actual physical contact and we are careful to highlight all the facts
that support your side of the story. At Bublitz Law, P.C. our legal team
is experienced and familiar with how these cases work. We have had a number
of notable case successes in this area of law.
