A person is guilty of stalking if he or she “willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly follows, harasses, or cyberstalks another person and makes a credible threat to that person.” Fla. Stat. 784.048(2).
The statute further defines the following terms:
- Harass – engaging in a course of conduct toward another person that causes substantial emotional distress to that person and serves no legitimate purpose.
- Cyberstalk – communicating words, images, or language via electronic mail or electronic communication, directed at a specific person and causing substantial emotional distress to that person and serving no legitimate purpose.
- Course of Conduct – a pattern of conduct established by a series of acts that evidences a continuity of purpose.
Unlike other types of injunctions, there does not have to be a specific type of relationship between the parties involved and anyone who falls victim to stalking by another individual may file for an injunction for protection from stalking.
