Restraining Order Laws in New Mexico
In New Mexico, a victim may file a restraining order if he or she believes to be in reasonable danger. If filed, a defendant must maintain zero conduct with the victim. Under New Mexico restraining order law, violators of an order of protection can potentially face 3rd degree felony harassment or stalking charges.
Stalking as a Criminal Charge
Stalking is prosecuted more severely than harassment and has different legal requirements. To qualify as stalking under New Mexico law, a pattern of behavior must cause an individual to be in reasonable fear of:
- Sexual Assault
In order to be stalking behavior, a victim must be able to document two or more incidents in which the offender has followed, monitored, performed surveillance, or threatened the victim. When you choose our Albuquerque law office, we thoroughly review the prosecution’s evidence. Committed to achieving the best possible outcome for your case, we explore every available option for your defense.
