Client Wins Judges Favor for Non- C.L.E.T.S.
Internet Cyberstalking and Harassment
Denied Request for C.L.E.T.S.
My client was carrying on a long distance internet dating relationship through Skype® with a rock musician from Los Angeles. The rock musician alleged that he ended the relationship when he found out that his current girlfriend was pregnant. Furthermore, he claimed that my client refused to take the hint. He asserted that my client sent him threatening and racially charged messages through internet social media, e-mail, and phone calls. He claimed that he feared for his life and the safety of his girlfriend and unborn child. He filed a police report and a petition for a domestic violence restraining order. At the hearing on the domestic violence restraining order he was accompanied by a victim's advocate from the Alameda County District Attorney's Office.
My client did not want to appear at the hearing on the restraining order because she claimed that she feared her accuser. We prepared a thorough response to the rock musician's petition for a restraining order. Following the hearing the court denied his request for a C.L.E.T.S. restraining order. Instead he issued a non C.L.E.T.S. restraining order against the rock musician and in favor of my client.
