Vigorously Fighting Stalking Charges
Stalking is taken seriously in Michigan. While conviction brings the possibility of incarceration, it will also leave a mark on your criminal record. Every time potential employers perform a background check, they will see the criminal record, which may lead them to believe you are a violent or disturbed individual. Because your freedom and future are at stake, it is essential that you vigorously fight the charge against you.

Stalking involves willfully, viciously and repeatedly initiating unwanted contact with someone and putting that person in fear for his or her safety. The contact can take many forms, including emails, phone calls, unwanted gifts and physically following the person.
Claims of stalking are often exaggerated or completely false. Frequently, the accused is first contacted by the alleged victim, responding to what he or she believes may be an attempt to reconcile. Other times, the accuser is motivated by jealousy or spite, inventing the stalking claim in an attempt to get the accused into trouble with the law. Often, these claims accompany a hostile divorce or breakup.
