What constitutes stalking?
Stalking has a wider definition than most people realize. While it is a
term common in casual conversation, the legal definitions are specific
and detail a serious offense.
Elements of stalking include deliberate and repeated:
- Phone calls
- Electronic communications
It should be noted that stalking can also be charged if any of the above
mentioned actions happen to an immediate family member or third party
and causes you emotional distress or harm. That means you can file charges
if children, parents, or friends are being harassed by a spouse or former
partner. On the other hand, that means you could be accused of stalking
if you try to reach out to your children or family members in a way that
your spouse finds offensive, making these charges extremely complicated.
