Aggravated Stalking Questions

When someone has been stalked by a person, it can be a scary time for that person and many such cases can quality as aggravated stalking. The laws in each state on aggravated stalking and its consequences can vary. Read below where Lawyers on JustAnswer have provided legal answers to the most common questions on aggravated stalking.

What is aggravated stalking?

The definition of aggravated stalking is when the stalker doesn’t just follow the person around where ever they may go, but when it escalates to a point where the stalker threatens the victim with bodily harm to the victim or their family, friends, or any other person that the victim may be involved with in their personal life. The stalker may also push, or shove the victim and possibly try to enter their home and harm them or their family.

In Nevada what is the punishment for aggravated stalking?

The minimum punishment for aggravated stalking in the state of Nevada would normally be probation. If a person commits the crime of stalking as their first offence and pleads guilty, it may be treated as a misdemeanor. If a person commits the crime of aggravated stalking, their punishment it would normally be treated as a Class B felony and by way of punishment, the person may be placed in state prison for a between two and fifteen years. The person could also be punished with a fine no more than $5,000. For state specific laws on aggravated stalking, you could ask a lawyer on JustAnswer for fast and affordable answers.

How does Michigan define stalking, and what are the state’s punishments?

The state of Michigan has one of the toughest stalking laws. Stalking is defined as an intentional behavior relating to harassment of another person that would cause a person to feel frightened, intimidated, threatened, harassed or molested. Stalking is a misdemeanor, and can attract a penalty of one year and/or $1,000 in fines and up to five years in probation. Aggravated stalking is a felony, with a penalty of five years and/or $10,000 in fines and any amount of years in probation that the court deems appropriate. This may be a term of five years or more. Aggravated stalking is stalking that takes place with one or more of these conditions: (a) if the stalking breaks a personal protection order, (b) if this is the stalker’s second offense, (c) if the stalker makes a convincing threat to either kill or physically harm a person or a member of the victim’s household or family.

Can someone on probation for aggravated stalking relocate to another state?

In most situations, if someone is on probation, the transfer from one state to another is not automatic. First the state in which they have been convicted must grant the person permission to relocate and then they must get permission from the probation department in the state they want to move to. In order to relocate, the person can talk to the probation officer seek help in making this transfer, and indicate why they want to relocate.

They would need to contact the Office of Public Defender, and the Probation Department in the state in which they were convicted, and put on probation. They will also need to contact the Office of Public Defender and the Probation Department in the state in which they want to relocate to, to help get the probation transferred. For further help on issues related to aggravated stalking, you can ask a Lawyer on JustAnswer for expert opinions and legal insights.

If someone was convicted of aggravated stalking, what can the victim do if the offender hasn’t stopped contacting them?

If the victim feels their life is in danger because of this person, they would need to seek a restraining order. They can also seek an ex-parte order on their own. A hearing would be set where the victim can request a permanent restraining order.

When someone has been a victim of aggravated stalking, they may not know where to turn or what their rights are. Lawyers on JustAnswer have many years’ experience in the legal field and are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, to help answer any questions you may need clarity on.
