Miami Cyberstalking Attorneys

Providing Effective Representation for 45+ Years

Stalking has long been a criminal offense under Florida law, involving the willful, malicious, and repeated harassment or following or another person, with or without physical threats. With the rise of the internet, a new form of stalking developed – cyberstalking. Many people think cyberstalking is less serious than other forms of stalking. After all, communications over a computer are more remote and may be considered less threatening than communications in person or on a voice call.

However, cyberstalking can have a significant effect on victims and, therefore, Florida law enforcement authorities take this offense very seriously and often prosecute suspected offenders to the fullest extent of the law. In addition, cybercrimes can be prosecuted by federal authorities, as well, since they make use of electronic communication. If you have been charged with cyberstalking, it is extremely important that you contact a Miami cyberstalking attorney who has specific knowledge of both state and federal laws and who has experience handling cases involving cybercrimes.

What Is Cyberstalking?

Just like stalking in person or via the mail or telephone, Florida sets out specific requirements for actions to constitute the criminal offense of cyberstalking.

Specifically, the prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt the following elements to convict you of cyberstalking:

  • You communicated directly with another specific person;
  • You used words or another type of language or images in the communication;
  • The communication took place through email, online messaging, websites, or any other type of electronic communication;
  • The other person experienced significant emotional distress due to the communications;
  • There was no legitimate justification for you to communicate in this manner with this person besides causing them emotional distress.

There are different acts that may fall under the category of cyberstalking because of the emotional distress they cause.

These acts include:

  • Any form of cyberbullying;
  • Pretending to be the victim online and saying distressful things;
  • Posting private information about someone on a public site;
  • Texting, messaging, or emailing unwanted sexual pictures;
  • Sexual harassment online.

A cyberstalking conviction can have a significant effect on your finances and your freedom. Even if you are not sentenced to jail time, a conviction can limit who can contact and where you can go. A conviction can have an effect on your parental rights and can limit your professional opportunities, as stalking can disqualify you from working in certain settings, such as hospitals or schools. In short, you want to avoid a conviction of cyberstalking whenever possible.
