STALKING

A course of conduct where the defendant willfully, maliciously and repeatedly followed or harassed the victim.

Harass means a course of conduct directed at a specific person that causes substantial emotional distress and serves no legitimate purpose.

Aggravated Stalking includes the added act of a credible threat that places the victim in reasonable fear of death or bodily injury.

A credible threat means a threat made with the intent to cause reasonable fear for one’s safety, and must be against the life of the victim or a threat to cause bodily injury.
