What is stalking in California?
Stalking is defined as following, harassing, or threatening someone to the degree where they become concerned for their own safety or the safety of their family in the state of California. Additionally, it calls for repeated performance of these tasks. Sending unwelcome gifts, following a coworker home, passing by their house or place of employment, running into someone “accidentally,” making harassing phone calls, sending numerous emails, texts, or letters are a few actions that may fall under the definition of stalking.
Options for defending against stalking accusations
Naturally, the particulars of your case will determine the best defense. We might try to disprove the accusations made against you. In actuality, someone who is enraged or seeking retaliation could accuse someone of stalking. Whether the evidence against you is based on DNA, video, audio, or handwriting, we can call in investigators and expert witnesses to evaluate it and demonstrate that even if the victim was stalked, you were not the one who did it.
You might also argue that any threats you made were unfounded as a kind of defense. Making a threat that is not credible is not against the law. If you threatened to blow up a house with a nuclear bomb, for instance, that is not enough to properly cause the individual to fear for their lives, and as a result, stalking did not take place.
Finally, we could contend that your First Amendment right to free speech applied to what you said or did. If there is a lot of credible evidence against you, we might try to negotiate a plea agreement to get the charges dropped.
