Domestic Violence – Stalking

Under Colorado law, a person commits stalking if directly, or indirectly through another person, the person knowingly:
• Makes a credible threat to another person and, in connection with the threat, repeatedly makes any form of communication with that person, repeatedly follows, approaches, contacts, or places under surveillance that person, a member of that person’s immediate family or someone with whom that person has or has had a continuing relationship; or
• Makes a credible threat to another person and, in connection with the threat, repeatedly makes any form of communication with that person, a member of that persons immediate family, or someone with whom that person has or has had a continuing relationship, regardless of whether a conversation ensues; or
• Repeatedly follows, approaches, contacts, places under surveillance, or makes any form of communication with another person, a member of that person’s immediate family, or someone with whom that person has or has had a continuing relationship in a manner that would cause a reasonable person to suffer serious emotional distress and does cause that person, a member of that person’s immediate family, or someone with whom that person has or has had a continuing relationship to suffer serious emotional  distress.
Stalking is a class 5 felony for a first offense, or a class 4 felony if at the time of the offense, there was a temporary or permanent protection order, injunction, or condition of bond, probation, or parole or any other court order in effect against the person, prohibiting the behavior described.
Stalking is a class 4 felony for a second or subsequent offense, if the offense occurs within seven years after the date of a prior offense for which the person was convicted.
