Experienced Defense Against Stalking Charges in Central Valley

California, like many other states, has a law against stalking. California Penal Code Section 646.9 defines "stalking" as any individual who repeatedly follows, harasses, and/or threatens someone with the intent to frighten that person into fearing for their safety or the safety of their family members. This is known as the California stalking law.

In order to be convicted of stalking, there has to be a pattern of actions. This includes annoying someone intentionally, frightening someone, and harassing behavior. The patterns of stalking could be shown through repetitive phone calls, texts, or letters. The victim must also experience actual fear or distress as a result of the activity. There also has to be believable intimidation of the victim and/or their family, either explicitly or implied.
Common activity reported as stalking includes watching someone, spying, visiting unannounced, and unwanted text messages or phone calls.

Penalties for stalking can be severe, and included a year in prison and fines of up to $1,000. Continued stalking after conviction can increase the penalties, as can violation of a restraining order. Enhanced penalties could result in up to 4 years in jail.
