“Stalking” is a word that has many meanings in today’s world. With social media, it is easy to keep track of a person’s life from afar without them even knowing. While the government has laws surrounding technological harassment, stalking is a crime that can only be committed in person.
Aggravated stalking is a specific criminal charge. In general, it is the violation of a restraining order or legal stipulation that the defendant stays away from a certain person. If the subject has some sort of legal stipulation that the defendant stay away from them, the defendant cannot:
- Follow the subject.
- Place the subject under surveillance.
- Attempt to have personal contact with them in any way.
Any violation of these restraining orders or injunctions may result in an aggravated stalking charge.
