Stalking in Arapahoe County: Follow a Friend or Lover and Go to the Arapahoe County Jail

Stalking and Drama in Aurora and Golden, Colorado Courts

In the drama dependent lives of many today, a chance to call police and say you are being stalked is great social media fodder. Colorado lawmakers make it easy: allege you are being followed and that you were threatened, and presto, an instant story where you are queen for the day.

Stalking Attorney in Jefferson County and Douglas County, Colorado

Here is the combination which police in Jefferson County look for, or on a slow crime day. In other cases, they study a report from someone who calls police, to see if they have a crime worthy of an arrest and social media attention in Douglas County:

1. a threat of some kind (not necessarily for physical harm); AND

2. repeated contact of any kind with the person you've contacted or their family or their friend, OR;

3. follow or watch or approach the person you threatened

This poorly worded law is so broad that anyone can get revenge at another for breaking up, or offending them. More information on Colorado Stalking.
