Asked in Libel & Slander for Mississippi

Q: I had warrant issued today claiming cyberstalking. The people I have had arguments with have been threatening me.

If I made any threats they were only retaliation threats after I had already been threatened. As usual arguments go. I am being charged with cyber stalking, but the people who were cyber stalking me are the same people filing the charges. I need advice on how to handle this situation.

A: Cyberstalking if a very tricky subject, and very fact intensive. Your best bet is going to be to contact a criminal defense attorney to go through the facts of your case and see what defenses that you may have available.
