Tampa Stalking Defense Attorneys

Stalking / Harassment in Tampa, Florida

Stalking is a criminal act that occurs when a person purposefully and repeatedly harasses another person, or intends to harass another person. In recent years, it has been discovered that there are many different types of stalking. Types of stalking that are frequently committed and reported to law enforcement include celebrity, cyber and workplace stalking.

When a person stalks a victim, the victim is usually aware of the harassing behavior and often has to live in a state of fear that their stalker may cause them harm. Once this behavior is reported to law enforcement, the victim will usually file for a restraining order as a way to prevent the stalker from making contact with or following them. Sometimes, restraining orders are effective and the harassment ends. Other times, the stalking behaviors only become worse, which can endanger the emotional, mental, and physical well-being of the victim.

Stalking Charges & Penalties

Due to the increase in stalking cases reported over the year, the state of Florida has adopted strict anti-stalking laws. These laws demand that stalkers be arrested and punished for their harassing behaviors, which can include violence, threats, invasion of privacy, burglary, vandalism, and trespassing. Once a person has been charged with stalking, it is usually a wise idea for the person to review their legal options with a knowledgeable criminal attorney.

Without assistance from a lawyer, people stand to face numerous life-altering legal penalties if convicted. Thomas & Paulk can help you avoid the penalties that may come with a stalking conviction.
