You deserve an aggressive defense from an experienced stalking defense attorney.
Following someone around, calling or texting them constantly, or arranging “accidental” meetings everywhere they go, are all examples of behavior that can easily cross the line from annoying to criminal. If the target of your attention feels threatened and fears for their safety, you may be charged with stalking.
California has some of the toughest stalking laws of any state, with the possibility of felony charges and up to 5 years behind bars if you are convicted. In order to make sure you are treated fairly by police and prosecutors at every stage of your case, you need to have an aggressive stalking defense attorney on your side.
At Perlmutter & Pourshalimi, we can provide the aggressive representation you need to resolve the allegations against you as quickly and advantageously as possible.
Possible Stalking Defenses
There are a variety of defense arguments that can be effective in a stalking case. The first one to explore is typically of false accusations. Unfortunately, false stalking charges are often filed maliciously by individuals who want to cause hardship for the defendant. By scrutinizing the accuser’s background and credibility, as well as by looking into any evidence supporting the alleged acts of stalking, we may be able to get the stalking charges dismissed.
Another possibility is that whatever actions you took don’t actually fit the definition of stalking, either because you made no threats or those threats were not credible. We will also explore the possibility that your statements were protected as free speech.
As your stalking defense lawyer, we will carefully investigate your case to determine the best defense strategy given the facts of your case and your goals for its resolution.
