Anti-Harassment Order Obtained Against Prior Acquaintance Engaged in Stalking
RESULT | 2 Year Anti-Harassment Order obtained to protect victim
A young woman in high school was being stalked by a prior acquaintance who was an older man. He was showing up at the park near her house and her school. The young woman was afraid of the older man because he seemed to have mental health problems and was saying irrational things to school officials. The young woman and her parents wished to obtain a protection order against the older man so that the police could arrest him if he continued to stalk her. Not only did the court grant a protection order, but it issued a two-year order after being convinced that the standard one-year order would not offer sufficient protection for the young woman.
