Florida Stalking Crimes Defense Attorney

Stalking Crimes

If you’ve been arrested on suspicion of stalking, you are probably wondering what comes next. In the state of Florida, stalking is considered a form of harassment. Under criminal code 784.048, it is defined as "repeatedly following, harassing, or cyber stalking an individual." As such, there are many different ways in which an individual can end up behind bars for such behavior – from menacing a person’s Facebook or email account, to following someone everywhere they go. However, there are instances in which a case of mistaken identity or genuine confusion lands someone in jail. Whatever the case may be, you’ll need a strong and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney at your side to prevent further loss of freedoms.

With our insight, experience and tenacity you’ll be able to successfully fend off these charges and move on with your life.

Is There a Difference Between Stalking And Aggravated Stalking in Florida?

Yes – and it significant. Stalking is repeated and malicious behavior that causes the person being followed to feel a considerable amount of emotional distress. As you can imagine, aggravated stalking is this action amplified. If you’ve been charged with aggravated stalking, the harassment is more than likely connected to previous incidents, is far more aggressive in nature and causes the victim to fear for his or her own life. Keep in mind that any member of a family can be harassed in such a manner. Children can be victims of stalking as well.

What Can Happen if I am Convicted of Stalking?

This depends greatly on the degree of your charge. If you are found guilty of stalking, you could face up to a year in prison and up to $1000 fine, not to mention court costs. If on the other hand you are found guilty of aggravated stalking, you could be looking at a maximum of 5 years in prison and fines in excess of a few thousand. This of course does not take into consideration the terrible personal and professional damage such a conviction can have on your life.
