Flint, MI asked in Criminal Law for Michigan

Q: I am pressing charges for a peeping tom. What are the possible penalties that will happen to the guy? In Michigan

I am also trying to file for a PPO because he is threatening to call my university to end my nursing career with slanderous information and will not stop calling and texting my boyfriend about me. Do you think the PPO will be granted at the hearing?

A: The “Peeping Tom” would be facing a disorderly conduct charge, which is punishable by 90 days in jail and/or $500 in fines. The PPO should be granted if you can show he has done a pattern of 2 or more acts without your consent that make you feel terrorized, frightened, intimidated, threatened or harassed.
