Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
DearCustomer- It would appear that you have already taken the proper steps to get her to stop calling by filing a complaint in the court. Certainly the judge will issue a restraining order against her and if she continues she will likely go to jail for contempt.
It would appear that this person has some type of mental problem based on the facts presented. You need to be careful if you fear any violence from her. It is a crime to harass by phone so the court is the best place to seek help. You can also file a civil suit against her for damages for denying you the quiet enjoyment of your home and for harassment. Maybe both the threat of jail and monetary damages will be enough to make her stop this activity.
