What Does Stalking Entail?
According to Florida law, stalking is willful, malicious, and repeated following or harassing. There is also a related, escalated charge: aggravated stalking. For stalking to be “aggravated,” it must also include serious threats that cause reasonable fear of bodily harm or death. Stalking may also be “aggravated” if the victim is under 16 or the stalker continues to harass the victim after an injunction for protection has been placed. Speak to a lawyer in Pasco County from our firm to determine whether your circumstances meet the legal definitions for stalking or aggravated stalking.
