Customer: Hi. The biological grandmother to my daughter has filed criminal charges against me for telephone harassment
. It is true that I sent her some mean text messages but she never asked me to stop contacting her. She works at Otterbein and had a detective their at Otterbein file the charges. On December 17th, she contacted my Employer, Mount Carmel College of Nursing, and told an associate in human resources that I had sent her mean text messages. Kim, in associate relations, indicated that ***** ***** (the grandmother) had called and left multiple messages. The human resources went and talked to my direct boss, the dean of the college and shared it with her. 2 questions: Can I file a defamation
of character suit? And what is the best defense against the charges of failure to cease and desist. Those charges aren't true as she didn't ask me to stop calling her. Can I file for a dismissal of the case?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Oh, my name is Heather. ***** ***** is the biological grandmother. Basically her son, my daughters biological father has never spent much time with my daughter nor has her biological grandmother. My family and I have always had full custody of my daughter.
