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.)
