Cyberstalking is a technologically-based “attack” on one person who has been targeted specifically for that attack for reasons of anger, revenge or control. Cyberstalking is considered assault, battery; culpable negligence. To cyberstalk means to engage in a course of conduct to communicate, or to cause to be communicated, words, images, or languor by or through the use of electronic mail or electronic communication, directed at a specific person, causing substantial emotional distress to that person and serving no legitimate purpose.
A law enforcement officer may arrest, without a warrant, any person that he or she has probable cause to believe has violated this section. A person who willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly follows, harasses, or cyberstalks another person and makes a credible threat to that person commits the offense of aggravated stalking, a felony of the third degree.
Cyberstalking crimes are punishable by imprisonment and is often accompanied by a restraining order.
