Have you been charged with stalking? Alejo Lugo will fight for you.
Have you been accused of following, calling, or texting someone too much? Even if you believe that your actions were normal or necessary, the victim can bring a stalking charge if they say that they feel so threatened by your behavior that they have started fearing for their safety.
California’s laws on stalking are very tough. Depending on the circumstances of the alleged stalking, you could face felony charges carrying severe criminal penalties including jail time. You definitely do not want to face these kinds of charges alone. You need an experienced stalking defense attorney like The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo to stand by you and provide a passionate defense of your rights and interests.
Possible Defenses for a Stalking Charge
As your stalking attorney, Alejo Lugo and his team will carefully examine the evidence against you to determine the best defense strategy for your specific situation.
Typically, the first step we take is investigating the victim to determine whether they will be a credible witness if the case goes to trial. It may be the case that the victim is exaggerating their description of your actions or words, or that they are falsely accusing you. If we can damage their credibility by uncovering information about their past or reputation, we may be able to weaken the prosecution’s case so much that they will decide to dismiss the charges against you, or at the very least offer a plea deal.
We will also look into the details of the alleged stalking behavior your are accused of. It is possible that your behavior doesn’t actually rise to the level of stalking because a reasonable person would not have found your behavior threatening or your threats credible. We will also consider whether your communications with the alleged victim were protected by your right to free speech.
Our attorneys have fifteen years of experience in criminal law and will use that expertise and our knowledge of the local courts to pursue the best possible outcome in this case for you. If the best option for you is to take this case to trial, then we will attack all of the prosecutor’s evidence at trial and argue that you should be acquitted. If the evidence against you is strong enough that trial is not the best option, we will work with the prosecutor to get the best plea deal that involves the lightest sentence possible for you.
