Stalking is repeated harassment or invasions of privacy leaving a person in fear for her/his safety or the safety of loved ones. Stalking may include:
- physically following another person
- repeatedly making unwanted contact with another person (i.e. coming to the person's home, sending letters, emails, phone calls, text messages, messages through another person, etc.)
- closely observing a person's actions for an extended period of time
- inappropriately contacting a person's family members or friends
Stalking is against the law in the State of Utah. Depending on its severity, stalking can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony.
The Utah Criminal Code (state statutes or laws that describe what criminal behavior is) describes the official legal elements of stalking. To read Utah laws regarding stalking:
