Can I have my ex sister-in-law charged with Aggravated harassment ans Stalking ?

Asked 10 months ago - Maybrook, NY

I have a 5 year restraining order against my ex husband and he lost ALL custody, visitation and communication with my 17 year old daughter. I told my ex sister-in -law well over a year ago to never call my home again for any reason what so ever. This past Friday, my daughter graduated from High School. My ex husband was not allowed to attend the graduation, so he had his sister call my home and she left a message asking me if she could attend with her daughter. (After I told her to never call my home again) I did not return her call. At the graduation, I saw my ex sister-in-law sitting behind me, without having been invited, talking pictures of my daughter, who I have sole, legal custody of, without my permission or consent, no doubt for my ex husband. Can I have her charged with Aggravate
