Charges of Stalking and Threatening to Commit a Crime Continued Without a Finding
In November of 2021 a woman in southeastern Massachusetts went to her local police station and made a complaint that our client had been stalking her. She showed over 30 text messages from our client in one day alone all of which made sexual advances. The woman blocked our client's number. This did not help matters. He generated several hundred text messages from other devices, all of the same nature. He was charged with stalking under G.L. c. 265 section 43 and threatening to commit a crime under G.L. c. 275 section 2. Today, we got our client a continuance without a finding. All charges will be dismissed following a successful probationary period.
