Stalking

Stalking Charges

Stalking – defined by harassing, threatening, or following someone to the point they fear for their safety – is against the law in California. An example would be following a bartender home every night after work, despite her telling you that it makes her uncomfortable. You don’t always need to be present for it to be considered stalking. If you repeatedly send threatening texts or letters, you can be charged with stalking.

Penalties for Stalking

Stalking can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony. Misdemeanor stalking can result in up to 1 year in jail. Felony stalking can result in a maximum of 5 years in prison.
