Charged with Harassment or Stalking in Pennsylvania?
Fight Back with an Experienced Defense Lawyer!
Stalking is defined under PA criminal laws as repeatedly
following or committing other acts upon a person with an intent to
place the person in reasonable fear or bodily injury, or otherwise
cause the person substantial emotional distress.
Harassment is the intent to annoy or alarm the other person by
repeatedly committing acts that serve no legitimate purpose.
Both these charges are commonly brought about by disgruntled
ex-boyfriends or girlfriends, and can be fought on the facts and
merits of the claim.
Since these charges can also be elements of a
charge, you need to have an experienced defense lawyer to help work
through these claims, and keep yourself from getting a criminal
record, and facing potentially severe penalties and consequences to
your life. I know how to beat harassment and stalking charges, and
can make the right argument to a judge for a chance at a
dismissal, or to win your case in a trial if necessary.
