Orlando Stalking Defense Lawyer
Experienced Defense Against Stalking Charges in Orlando and Central Florida
If the State believes that you are engaging in a course of conduct that caused substantial emotional distress to your accuser either in person or electronically without making any threats, you can be charged with Stalking or Cyber-Stalking under Florida Statute 784.048, based only on the word of an accuser. Both versions of the statute are first degree misdemeanors punishable by a year in the county jail, and a fine of up to $1,000. Even the simple act of repeatedly texting "I love you," to your former partner can be charged with cyber-stalking, if someone thinks it caused them emotional distress. Anytime a person is charged with a computer related offense – whether it involves a desktop computer or a cell phone, they need an attorney seasoned enough to ask the right questions of the investigators of your case. That seasoned attorney is Jack Kaleita!
If the accuser says that you made a credible threat to them, you can be charged with a third degree felony of Aggravated Stalking under Florida Statute 784.048(3). A third degree felony carries a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison! You need an stalking defense attorney that has the experience to challenge the sufficiency of the evidence against you. Mr. Kaleita's experience of over 28 years in the courtroom can defend you against these allegations. He can help you understand the intricacies of the law and develop a plan to resolve your case in the best way possible for you.
If you have an Injunction for Protection against domestic violence prohibiting you from contacting your partner and you are then accused of knowingly, willfully, maliciously and repeatedly following or harassing that person, you can face a charge of Aggravated Stalking under Florida Statute 748.048. In Florida, this crime is also a third degree felony and punishable by up to 5 years in prison. If you have an injunction against you, and you are accused of simply repeatedly texting that person, you could end up charged with this crime.
