i was not arrested. the police called and I went to the station. states violation of 18.2-429
The allegation was made, all I did was go to the police station and they handed me the paperwork with the court date. His allegations specifically are not there. I have to go to the courthouse to get a copy of that. Court date is for 1/30/13.
I have hundreds of texts from him where my only response is stop texting me. Would it be a good idea to also have him arrested? I certainly can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that he has harassed me, my father, my uncle and my roommate They will all come to court to testify about how many times they have asked him to stop contacting him. Until I filed for a protective order, which I got for 6 months, he was still continuing to pursue all of us....even my neighbor he harassed. I hate to waste my time going back and forth to court, now that i have the protective order, he has to stay away. Problem is solved as far as I am concerned but I guess the question is, would it work out in my favor to also have him arrested? I am certain I can have him arrested. Just would like this to be thrown out, I am tired of being harassed.
