Stalking under Texas Law
The Texas Penal Code Section 42.072 defines stalking. You will be charged with stalking if you engage in a course of knowing conduct on more than one occasion that is directed against the same person. This conduct is defined as following the person in a manner that is perceived to be threatening to the alleged victim such as with threat of bodily injury to the victim, threat of bodily injury to the victim's family or household members, or threat of damage to the victim's property. Such threatening behavior must be seen as behavior which would create fear in a reasonable person. Stalking can also include threats made through the mail or by phone. The threats may also be made against the victim by a person who is acting for the stalker.
A first offense of stalking is charged as third-degree felony. In second or subsequent convictions, it is charged as a second degree felony. Third-degree felonies carry penalties of 2 to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Second degree felonies carry penalties of 2 to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Victims of stalking in a domestic violence situation may seek a protective court order, which will prohibit the alleged offender against any form of contact.
