My neighbor in the duplex I rent pled guilty of harassment and harassing communications, she continues to knock on my windows at all hrs of the night. I have no choice but to move in order to live a peaceful happy healthy life.
Can I do anything against her for the harm she has done to me?
The answer to you question is whether your neighbor can pay any judgment you might recover. You have not given any details that would indicate any other party, such as the landlord, would have any liability. It is doubtful that your neighbor has funds sufficient to make it worth your time and cost to file a civil suit.
