Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
What you want to do here is inform him that he defaulted under your agreement and you have no intention of paying him anything as he defaulted. And, demand, in an email, that he cease and desist in any further harassing emails or you will contact the district attorney's office to file formal criminal harassment charges against him. Once you warn him to stop and he fails to do so, he is violating the following law:
§ 3-803. Harassment
Prohibited(a) A person may not follow another in or about a public place or maliciously engage in a course of conduct that alarms or seriously annoys the other:(1) with the intent to harass, alarm, or annoy the other;(2) after receiving a reasonable warning or request to stop by or on behalf of the other; and(3) without a legal purpose.Exception(b) This section does not apply to a peaceable activity intended to express a political view or provide information to others.Penalty(c) A person who violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction is subject to:(1) for a first offense, imprisonment not exceeding 90 days or a fine not exceeding $500 or both; and(2) for a second or subsequent offense, imprisonment not exceeding 180 days or a fine not exceeding $1,000 or both.
