I was verbally abused...

I was verbally abused, humiliated and sweared at (crimen injuria?) through my personal WhatsApp Voice messages. I was threatened by publishing a video and photos and emailing family.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

South Africa

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Nothing yet. It happened about 4 hours ago. It is 2:04 am in SA. Everybody is sleeping...

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

She has a history of stalking, uncontrolable anger and maliciousness.I didn't respond to her, I am in a state of total disbelieve and shock. She used very very bad words.

I want to protect myself and my family. Can I lay a charge against her? What is the next step to do?
Thank you

The question is what is it that you want to accomplish. From what you wrote, it seems like you do not want certain photos and a video to be shown to your family. As soon you as lay a charge against her, these will become evidence, and your family might see them.

If she did not threaten you, or your family and you have nothing to fear, you can just delete these offensive messages and block her number. Otherwise, you can lay a charge at the SAPS and you can also obtain an interdict against her at your local Magistrates Court in terms of the Protection from Harassment Act.

You can read a bit more about the act here.

I hope this answered your question.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
