If you or a loved one has been accused of, or arrested for stalking or aggravated stalking in Brevard County, FL, it is vital obtain experienced legal counsel at the earliest stage of your case.

In general, “stalking” arrests occur when a person engages in a repeat course of conduct designed to cause a substantial amount of emotional distress to another. A conviction for a misdemeanor offense of stalking is punishable by up to 1 year in the county jail, 1 year of probation, and a $1000 fine.  Read Florida’s Stalking Statute

Although typically charged as misdemeanors, stalking charges can quickly escalate into the serious felony charge of “aggravated stalking” when the repeated conduct/harassment is accompanied by a threat of harm that places the victim in fear of either death or bodily injury. Aggravated stalking is a third degree felony and is punishable by up to 5 years in prison, 5 years of probation, and a $5000 fine.  Read Florida’s Stalking Statute

Defending Against Stalking Charges in Brevard County, FL

Defending these charges requires a sharp understanding of the law and a solid investigation into the alleged victim’s claims and the State’s case. In order to be considered stalking, there must be a repeated course of conduct, and there must be a credible threat of harm to sustain the enhanced version of aggravated stalking. Often and for many reasons, the alleged victim may overstate or overembellish claims of stalking with respect to the threat of harm and the quantity of acts alleged to have been committed. Our Melbourne criminal defense attorneys can evaluate your case to determine if the alleged victim’s claims coincide with this very technical statute. You may have valid defenses!
