If you are a victim of stalking. Or if you believe you are being stalked by someone it can be a very terrifying situation. There are some steps you will need to take if you have not already done so.
First you should contact your local law enforcement and make a report of the suspect’s action. Even if at this time there is not enough evidence for law enforcement to take action. The situation will be on record for future reference.
Next You should seek legal counsel and file a Petition for Order of Protection. IF you cannot afford legal counsel, you should still file for a Petition for Order of Protection. There is no charge for this, and you can file it on your own if need be.
(d)The attorney general shall promulgate a standard petition form which may be used by petitioners. The clerk of the circuit or district court shall make standard petition forms available to petitioners, with instructions for completion, without charge. If the petition is not filed by the district attorney, the court may appoint an attorney to represent an indigent petitioner. Nothing in this subsection shall prevent the victim from hiring an attorney or filing a petition pro se.
(e) A petition may be filed under this section whether or not the individual who is alleged to have engaged in a course of conduct prohibited under W.S. 6-2-506 has been charged or convicted under W.S. 6-2-506 for the alleged crime.”
After the petition is filed, there will be a hearing set.
“W.S. §7-3-508″ Temporary Order of Protection; Setting Hearing.
(a) Upon the filing of a petition for an order of protection, the court shall schedule a hearing on the petition to be conducted within seventy-two (72) hours after the filing of the petition, and shall cause each party to be served, either within or outside of this state, with an order to appear, a copy of the petition and a copy of the supporting affidavits. Service shall be made upon each party at least twenty-four (24) hours before the hearing. The failure to hold or complete the hearing within seventy-two (72) hours shall not affect the validity of the hearing or any order issued thereon.
(b) If the court determines from the specific facts shown by the petition and supporting affidavits that there exists a clear and present danger of further stalking or of serious adverse consequences to any person, the court may grant ex parte a temporary order of protection pending the hearing, and shall cause a copy of the temporary order of protection to be served on each party, either within or outside of this state. The court may prescribe terms in the temporary order of protection which it deems sufficient to protect the victim and any other person pending the hearing, including but not limited to the elements described in W.S. 7-3-509(a).
(c) A temporary order of protection issued under paragraph (b) of this section shall contain a notice that willful violation of any provision of the order constitutes a crime as defined by W.S. 7-3-510(c), can result in immediate arrest and may in some cases subject the perpetrator to enhanced penalties for felony stalking under W.S. 6-2-506(e).”
Show up for the hearing. Showing up for the hearing is very important. If you do not show up most people will not take the situation seriously.
One never knows what a person is capable of. A person that is stalking someone may turn to violent actions. The situation may become very dangerous, and it may do so very quickly.
