San Diego Stalking Defense Attorneys


Defending Stalking Charges

The crime of stalking usually occurs when the parties know each other and have been in an intimate relationship that has gone sour. It is always hard to let go. But sometimes, we go overboard and find ourselves doing things we never even dreamed of. Following an ex-spouse, spying on emails, and intercepting phone messages can all lead to charges of stalking or harassment.

You may not even realize that you could have stalking charges filed against you for your actions, which is why it is crucial that you obtain the counsel of a San Diego defense lawyer who can stand up for your rights and ensure your freedoms are safeguarded.

Types of Penalties for Stalking

The legal implications you may be facing for stalking charges can be severe. Penalties will depend upon whether you have a prior criminal record and the severity of the offense.

A charge can carry the following repercussions and consequences:

  • Fine of up to $1000
  • County jail sentence of up to 1 year

In cases where the stalking is in violation of a restraining order, it is considered to be a felony offense with a state prison sentence of 2, 3, or 4 years. For aggravated stalking (when violence is involved), it is a felony offense with a prison sentence of at least 1 year.
