Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
California has both civil and criminal penalties for cyberstalking..
On the criminal side, it is a crime to use computers, telephones or other electronic communication media, to annoy or harass. It is punisable by not more than one year in jail and up to $1000 fine.
On the civil side, Cal. Civil Code § 1708-1725 creates a civil claim for the same behavior. So, if you can prove this woman is doing this your mom can sue her in civil court.
Your first step is to contact local police to make a riminal complaint.
