Scottsdale Stalking Defense Lawyer
Have you been charged with stalking?
Stalking is a crime that is not always easy to pinpoint as an offense, especially when it involves domestic violence. Many family members who are charged with this crime have a perfectly legitimate reason to be in a neighborhood or place of work where the spouse or another family member may be in. Because of possible disputes occurring due to a divorce or other animosity, the person may accuse the partner of stalking as a method of revenge or ill will. When facing this type of a charge, it is important to contact a Scottsdale domestic violence attorney for the legal advice you will need to overcome these charges.
Stalking is considered a crime when a person repeatedly follows another person and harasses them, putting the person followed in fear of harm or damage to property. It can easily be used by a vengeful spouse as a means to get the upper hand in a divorce proceeding. With the help of the Law Offices of Joshua S.
