In 2009 I was viciously stalked by a (previously) friend from gade school and high school while my husband was in Afghanistan in the us military. With the sheriff's departments documents I filed for restraining order. Due to the difficulties i faced being stalked and harrassed, I needed treatment for PTSD. Because of my fuzzy recolection, criminal charges were dropped. Its been 2 years since i was in court, i feel i may relapse if i have to face this person again . I will need to renew in 2013. Will i face the same kind of hearing as the first one? Last time he also came with his lawer but the restraining order was granted.
