Under Oklahoma law, you may be criminally charged for stalking if you maliciously or willfully threaten, intimidate or frighten someone on a repeated basis. Stalking is closely tied to the crimes of harassment and making a threat of violence; however, under our state’s statutes, you may face separate charges for one or more of these offenses depending on the circumstances of the case.
Penalties for Stalking
Stalking is charged as a misdemeanor if it is a first offense; the maximum punishment is one year in jail. However, if you have prior convictions of stalking on your record, are on probation for a similar offense or are found to be in violation of a protective order, you could be facing a felony charge. In these cases, you could be punished with a sentence of up to five years in prison.
