Now, the police are allowed to conduct an investigation, however, it should not border or be harassment.
If one feels that they are being harassed by the authorities, one can have counsel threaten to sue unless they essentially 'back off.'
May I recommend the Florida Bar referral program - here
. The attorneys are vetted and qualified. You should be able to find an attorney you are confident with and whom you can trust, and who is available ASAP.
Essentially, an attorney can threaten to litigate unless the police stop harassment. If not, then the attorney may possible for for a restraining order under Fla. Stat. § 784.048(2)
for harassment, alone, or in tandem with a suit for intentional infliction of emotional distress
. To establish a cause of action for the intentional infliction of emotional distress, four elements must be proven: (a) deliberate or reckless infliction of mental suffering; (b) outrageous conduct; (c) the conduct must have caused the emotional distress; and (d) the distress must be severe. Dominguez v. Equitable Life Assurance Society of the United States, 438 So.2d 58 (Fla. 3rd DCA 1983), approved, 467 So.2d 281 (Fla. 1985).
Very often, the party threatened will simply back off, to avoid any litigation
. Likely, once such a letter to cease and desist
is sent, the matter should be resolved without even the need to litigate.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.IMPORTANT
