My boyfriend's ex girlfriend has been harassing me by sending me sexual photos of herself having sex with my boyfriend, along with text messages alluding that they are still together. She sends them from different phone numbers. My boyfriend says that they are old pictures taken when they were still together. I have chosen not to respond so as to not encourage her to continue the harassment. My boyfriend have asked her to stop but in vain. Is she doing anything illegal? She is an illegal undocumented immigrant and already under probation for criminal mischief she committed against my boyfriend. She lives in Indianapolis and I'm in Chicago.
This doesn't sound like a criminal matter. Your boyfriend could have a civil privacy rights violation that would justify a alwsuit, and you could have a civil harassment claim to seek an order for, but you might try ignoring them, or perhaps changing your number so she can't reach you.
Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.
