How to stop harassment if the other party is accusing you?

Asked over 1 year ago - Houston, TX

I had a relationship with someone who ended being a liar, the person was married and when I confirmed I disclosed the affair including the spouse, the person when crazy and started sending texts messages with threats, I filed a police complaint. Police apparently did not do anything. Never contacted me about it. This person contact me despite any warnings and send me an invitation to join in a social media site. Later I got contacted by the police (the officer identified himself as the investigator in the case I filed, I found out it was a lie later on) bottom line the person is accusing me of harassment when he is the one contacting me. Talked to attorneys and they said I have to wait to get charged, is that ok, ? I want to stop this person from contacting me

    Answered . I suggest that you obtain a protective order, temporary restraining order that prohibits him from calling, communicating and coming within 100 feet of you. Change all passwords, locks and install security camera at your home. The habits of yours that he is familiar with, alter them. Contact a supervisor officer and advise him that a person contacted you impersonating an officer and request a status of your charge. Hire an attorney to obtain the protective order.

    Answered . Time to change your accounts so that this person can no longer locate you. Retain an attorney and get a restraining order. Document everything. Make forensic copies of your phone and computer(s) to protect yourself before law enforcement takes them from you.
