I sent several anonymous texts an anonymous letter to a man

I sent several anonymous texts an anonymous letter to a man who is having an affair with my wife, threatening to tell his wife if he did not stop. He suspects it is from me (I have denied it) and is threatening to press charges for harassment and stalking. Have I violated the law?

I recently posted a link to a website showing a mugshot of a person, who is someone who writes books about spirituality and has a website advertising spiritual services, who is on a sex offender registry site on Facebook. I've also added reviews to his books on Amazon.com and on a youtube video stating that this person is a registered sex offender. He had the Amazon.com review taken down and stated in a response that I had violated federal and state stalking laws.Could disseminating already public information about a sex offender, or sharing this information on various sites, be considered stalking? I've never made any threats to this person or encouraged anyone else to. The law is vague because it talks of creating emotional anguish as a form of harrassment.Thanks

Hi Dwayne, my husband lives in Key West, recently after a trip

Hi Dwayne, my husband lives in Key West, recently after a trip down to visit he stopped answering my phone calls, text messages and emails. I realized there was a problem but he was not willing to talk to me. So I wrote several letters explaining how I felt about him, how much I loved him and asking to talk on the phone this was over a period of 5 weeks. Last night I sent a text message asking if we could talk, he replied no and that I would be hearing from his attorney. I asked why and he said for harassment. He said something that 3 or more letters constitutes harassment. Now I am a law school graduate and read the Florida harassment statute and found nothing indicating that and my reading of the statute to be considered harassment there needs to be some sort of threat or putting the recipient of the letters in fear or apprehension. Nothing I have said has been negative or could have made him fearful. All I really talked about was how much I loved him. He said he was going to press charges. Could he?

If my roommate violates the lease with a pet and I take a picture of her with the pet without her consent in our common area (of a shared apartment), can she have me arrested? I'm afraid she'll threaten me with this as retaliation if the pet is evicted.

C.R.S 18-9-111(4) is the Colorado statute for stalking. Subsection

C.R.S 18-9-111(4) is the Colorado statute for stalking. Subsection (4)(a) is a paragraph summary which looks to discuss the stereotype for stalking but not any actual requirements (???). Meanwhile subsection (4)(b) offers the three requirement options for stalking. So...does the accused have to first fit the stereotype of (4)(a) and then also one of the (b) options? Also in the comments at the bottom there are two comments which read: "The defendant could not have been charged with a violation of subsection (4) until all of the elements of the crime are completed." People v. Bastian, 981 P.2d 203 (Colo. App. 1998). and..."A person must directly, or indirectly through another person, knowingly make a credible threat to another person and repeatedly make any form of communication with the recipient of the threat." People v. Baer, 973 P.2d 1225 (Colo. 1999)This last comment in particular is strange because C.R.S 18-9-111(4)(b)(iii) does not require a credible threat to be made at all even.
