Cyberstalking is not a specifically enumerated crime in New York, but use of online platforms, tools, social media, and more to create fear in another person can be charged and prosecuted under the Stalking statute, and is considered a domestic violence crime in New York.
If you’re charged with Stalking, you can expect to receive a temporary restraining order to start things off, and if you are alleged to have used a computer in your conduct, the judge can restrain your use of electronic devices.
This can seriously impact your work, recreation, and even communication with friends and family.
