To answer your first question - Yes
The harassment is directed to both of us, but the sexual threats are directed towards my wife.
Do you require any more information at this point?
They retained an attorney to sue my wife and I .....for what?
they filed a complaint - I don't know what the specifics are.
Since his stalking my wife. She has insidious anxiety attacks, looks out windows at all hours of the night. She is afraid to be alone - anywhere. She used to be the strongest person I knew...but these people have been systematically destroying her life...It is of utmost importance that they cease and desist.
My wife and I have not had an intimate relationship with these people. The only way I knew him was that he was once pastor of a church that I attended. He was on the wrong side of a political battle in the church and was demoted/de-frocked. I am a charismatic speaker and one day, quite unexpectedly, he asked me to speak in front of his congregation ( I guess in his mind to restore some of his credibility?) I'm not trying to tell you irrelevant facts to make myself feel some modicum of relief. The law is black and white. All I want for my wife and myself is justice for what this monster has done. I have not even told you what he has done to other innocent people - as it is irrelevant at this point.
