An Overview of Harassment & Stalking Cases
Stalking is defined as the purposeful and repeated following and harassment
of an individual. Harassment refers to any act or behavior towards another
that is calculated to disturb or upset, or which the victim finds threatening.
There are many forms of stalking and harassment, including cyber stalking
(stalking a person over the internet), celebrity stalking, workplace stalking,
and workplace harassment. The penalties for stalking or harassment can
be harsh, and vary depending on certain circumstances, such as the intensity
or frequency of the act. A person convicted can face substantial fines,
community service, probation, mandatory counseling programs, restraining
orders, or even jail or prison time. If you have been charged with stalking
or harassing another, then it is important to know that you have rights
in this situation, and a lawyer can ensure those rights are protected,
as well as provide you with representation in your case.
