Overturning Stalking Charges

It is against the law to spy on, pursue, or otherwise make another individual fear for his or her safety. If a person makes another individual feel threatened or in danger, he or she may face criminal stalking charges. Unfortunately, some individuals may be wrongly accused of stalking another person and may suffer the negative effects of a criminal charge.

Stalking charges can carry fines, probation, and jail time, and may be reflected on the individual’s permanent record. Such accusations can seriously damage a person’s reputation in society and can make it difficult to obtain employment. If you have been wrongly accused of stalking another person, contact the Milwaukee criminal attorneys of Hart Powell, S.C. at (414) 271-9595 to discuss your case.

Overturning Stalking Charges

Common reasons for overturning stalking charges include:

  • False accusations
  • Incorrect or false statements made by witnesses
  • Perjury on the witness stand
  • Evidence that proves the accuser wrong
  • Verified alibis for the defendant
  • Jury decisions in favor of the defendant

If you have been accused of stalking another person, you have the right to defend yourself in a court of law. Persons who have been wrongly accused of stalking may have the chance to prove their innocence before a judge and jury. As a result, it is important to have experienced legal representation on your side.
