As I stated earlier, my husband had an extramarital affair. Me and the other woman contacted each other, discussed it and it was done. She began monitoring my Facebook and assumes all that I post is about her. I blocked her but she goes on other identities. I have never threatened her. In the beginning of the whole mess mentioned her name once not in a threat though and I quickly removed it. Time passed and she contacted my husbands employer stating I threatened her daughter and called her husband's work, all completely false. My husband was reprimanded at work due to this. I am a R.N. and my husbands company works with medical assoc. These allegations could damage my professional reputation. I do not wish to bring litigation but could anything be done? Could she charge me with harassment
Best bet is to have a local lawyer send a cease and desist letter to stop this nonsense. Avvo has a great lawyer finder tool to locate an attorney close to your home. Good luck.
Anyone can charge, sue, or take other actions against another person, so your question is yes. Whether she will win is another story. I agree with Mr. Lassen. Find a local attorney to send her a cease and desist letter. It may or may not stop her. But bringing suit against her will open up a large can of worms and cost a great deal of time, money and emotion and will cause you to hear information you may not want to hear.
You won't be "charged" with harrassment unless this woman swears out a warrant and convinces a Judge or a judicial magistrate that you committed a crime. Judicial officials don't get too excited about harrassment charges, unless there is clear evidence of abuse. If this woman continues to contact your work, or your husband's work, you need to send her written notice that she must cease from this activity. If she fails to cease, you will need to hire an attorney and seek an injunction.
