I need to issue a second restraining order on my ex

Hello,I need to issue a second restraining order on my ex girlfriend who I have not seen in 10 years nor spoken to since August of last year.The first Cease and Desist letter was sent 4/19/10 and the R.O was issued in P.A. on 3/2/2011.I currently reside in Houston, TX and my ex has started contacting me and calling my current girlfriend of 4 years at her work and has called her boss on her personal cell phone! This all started about 3 weeks ago, and its been non stop as she continues to email us and call from blocked/restricted numbers.She has gone so far as to make up fake profiles online so my girlfriend will accept her, all in hopes of gaining more info about us.I recently had the D.A.'s office and the Harris County Sherrif's department call her directly and they instructed her not to contact us anymore. Well, that didnt work.Can you please tell me what our options are and what we need to do to make the harrassment stop!My current girlfriend is scared and we feel things are only going te escalate at this point.Thank you,Sincerely,John Petersen***@******.***

I have an ex boyfriend and his wife (I believe) who are responsible for filing a criminal complaint against me for cyber harrassment. I had an argument with this ex boyfriend on-line and I got a weird call from a Texas detective telling me to call him regarding a criminal complaint filed against me?! I live in San Diego, CA and have not seen this person for years! He is a womanizer and cheated on me and I'm guessing he has many women angry with him! This is a frivilous complaint, is it okay to ignore it or what should I do?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: He is in Texas and I am in California! He filed some sort of harrassment/cyber complaint against me I'm guessing. I have not threatened him or done anything tell him off on-line! It's crazy!JA: Have any charges been filed? If so, what?Customer: I don't think so. All I know is that he filed a Criminal Complaint against me. For what I do Not know! I had a Texas Detective leave me a VM asking him to call him regarding a criminal complaint that has been filed against me!JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No but I would love to connect to the attorney. Thank you.

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?
