Detective Tony Cooper said a person does not have to physically
threaten someone in order to be arrested for cyber stalking.
Cooper encouraged people to remember that anything they say or do online or in text messaging can be traced. "People think it's easier to hide behind a computer screen and to do
this type of stuff but it's easier to track them," he said. "If the
victim tells you to stop, stop because it leave s a clear trail and
it's pretty easy to follow back."
Cyber stalking carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
