what legal rights do I have in my situation? This is harassment and I am facing FELONY charges for unfounded charges of animal neglect/cruelty if not reslved by tomorrow
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
do I have any legal rights at all?
Criminal Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. You may want to consider a restraining order against this neighbor who is calling about these things. You could also sue this person for harassment.Under the FL statutes, (a) “Harass” means to engage in a course of conduct directed at a specific person that causes substantial emotional distress in such person and serves no legitimate purpose. In this case, it seems as if he is trying to make your life more difficult by saying that you're engaging in animal cruelty when you are not.

You may want to consider just writing a cease and desist letter. Lawyers use letters like these often to enforce their client’s rights. Here’s a website that has a good template (click here). It only costs $10 and it is way cheaper than litigation.

What other questions did you have for me today that I can help you out with:-)?
