Penalties for Stalking in California

For a stalking charge a defendant may face misdemeanor or felony charges depending on whether there was a credible threat of harm to the alleged victim. For subsequent offenses, however, the charges will escalate. A misdemeanor stalking charge is punishable by probation and a sentence of county jail, while a felony charge is punishable by a sentence of state prison. Frequently, when someone is accused of stalking a restraining order is issued ordering a person to stay away from the alleged victim. When a person violates a restraining order this may be a separate criminal offense which is punishable by a state prison sentence of up to 4 years, in addition to other penalties (such as fines, probation and community service.)
