The California Penal Code describes stalking as willfully and repeatedly following or harassing and threatening another person so as to put that person in fear of their safety or the safety of their families. Generally speaking, stalking is a misdemeanor and punished by a maximum of one year in county jail. Depending on prior criminal history and the existence of any restraining orders, however, you may face felony stalking charges that can be punished by up to 5 years in state prison.
