Types of Sexual Violence/Misconduct

Stalking

Stalking is a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to fear for his or her safety or the safety of others; or suffer substantial emotional distress. Specifically stalking behavior consists of: (a) engaging in a course of conduct, even if recklessly done, which would cause a reasonable person to fear for their safety or the safety of another member of their immediate family and that person is placed in fear; or (b) to engage in a course of conduct targeted at a specific individual which the person knows will place that individual in fear for their safety or that of an immediate family member; or (c) violate the terms of a protective order and the prohibited statutory conduct after being served with the order. Instances which may be considered a “course of conduct” may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • To follow another person from place to place more than once with the intent to make the person afraid, or if this behavior would cause a reasonable person to be afraid or knowing it would make the person involved afraid;
  • To appear more than once at or around a person’s home, work, or other place where the person can be found, with the intent to make the person afraid, or if this behavior would cause a reasonable person to be afraid
  • To intimidate another by causing substantial emotional distress and to threaten another person with death or bodily injury
