Legal Definition of Stalking in Texas:

In Texas, stalking is defined as a pattern of repeated, unwanted attention, harassment, contact, or any other behavior directed at a specific person that causes the victim to feel threatened, frightened, or unsafe. This pattern of conduct can involve various forms of communication, physical presence, or electronic means.

Potential Legal Consequences:

Stalking charges carry severe legal consequences in Texas, including:

  1. Restraining Orders: A court may issue a restraining order, also known as a protective order, which restricts the accused person from contacting or approaching the alleged victim.
  2. Criminal Penalties: Convictions for stalking can result in criminal penalties, including fines and imprisonment. The severity of these penalties may escalate based on the nature and extent of the stalking behavior.
  3. Impact on Personal and Professional Life: Stalking convictions can have lasting consequences on personal and professional relationships. They may affect employment opportunities, social standing, and overall reputation.
