New York City Stalking Defense Attorney
Defend Your Rights with a Criminal Defense Lawyer in New York
Many well-intentioned people who are unaware that they are potentially engaging in criminal conduct find themselves arrested for stalking. When a person is accused of repeatedly contacting or subjecting a person to unwanted contact, he or she may find himself or herself arrested and facing stalking charges.
At the Law Office of Mark A. Bederow, P.C., our stalking defense attorney in New York City is passionate about securing the best possible outcome for our clients. Many times, charges are pressed without due attention to the circumstances surrounding the supposed crime. As a former prosecutor, our lead attorney can anticipate the strategies that will be used by the prosecution and work to effectively counteract their charges.
What Defines Stalking?
Even though at present there is confusion about the legality of New York's harassment laws, stalking and menacing statutes remain a useful tool on the prosecutor's belt.
With the rise of modern technology, a person can face stalking charges based merely on some of the following examples:
- Contact via text messages and email
- Communication through Facebook, Twitter, or other social media websites
- Location tracking through GPS devices or software
Depending on the exact nature of the stalking allegations, a person may face felony or misdemeanor charges. Stalking charges also lead to the issuance of Orders of Protection, which restrict an accused person's liberty and subject him or her to a greater likelihood of additional charges if there is further contact between the parties.
