I met a women off a free dating site, and within two days I found out she was highly addicted to Oxycontin. She had me sit in parking lots while she went into stores to lie about needing rent for drug money. She was also using up to 5 men to send her money, basically being an escort, or telling them lies off the internet. I have no clue if she prostituted herself. Things went sour very fast, as I found out she lied to me about every aspect of her life to me, and I decided to get on facebook and message a ton of her friends and family, telling them about the situation, linking her profile, and telling them she needs help. I only sent one message but they were quite alot, pretty stupid...but, mow she wants to try to get harassment charges pressed against me. I will never contact her or anyone she knows again. Do I have a legal defense, or does she actually have a case?
Sure you can. You harassed her. There was nothing that she did that justified or required you to say bad things about her to anyone. You should have simply walked away and left it be.
Will the police follow up on this? It really depends on what you said. Can she sue you civilly if the police do not act? Again, depends on what you said. So you may want to be sure you stay far away and keep your head down.
You certainly do not have a good legal defense. No one forced you to send messages. Seems like you could be guilty of harassment in the second degree, which is a misdemeanor carrying a fine of no more than $200 and/or less than 30 days in jail.
