Under Illinois law, you may be charged with stalking through the use of electronic media. In an era in which technology is changing at breathtaking speed, more cases are being filed on this type of stalking.

If you are approached by law enforcement officials, do not hesitate to contact me. It could mean the difference between being charged with a crime and being left alone.

Recent changes in the law have also made some instances of cyberstalking a Class 4 felony. A Class 4 felony can be punished by one to three years in prison.
