Stalking is a pattern of harmful or purposeful conduct that makes the victim feel threatened or afraid for their safety. Every year, around eight percent of women and two percent of men will be stalked at some point in their lives. Most stalkers are males. The majority of stalking cases involve a person who persistently focuses on another individual, the target. The stalker might lurk behind or beside the victim, watch him/her, break into his/her home or place of employment, and try to contact him/her via phone, text message, email, and paper mail. However, it is also all too common for someone to be unfairly accused of stalking for a variety of reasons. When your invites for a date are taken the wrong way or when your route home coincides with that of a coworker, you might be surprised when he or she interprets your attention as stalking. But it’s important to understand that stalking is intentional behavior, and people’s social actions are very frequently misinterpreted.
If you’ve been accused of stalking, the first thing that comes to mind is probably to contact the accuser and try to explain yourself. However, this is one of the most disastrous things you can do. It might complicate your case and your situation even more. Rather than doing this, get in touch with an experienced Las Vegas stalking defense attorney immediately.
