What is the definition of stalking in Missouri?

For the purpose of getting a protective order, stalking is defined as when any person purposely and more than once behaves in a way that:

  • serves no legitimate purpose; and
  • causes you to reasonably fear that you are in danger of being physically harmed.1

The acts that a stalker could do may include, but are not limited to, following you or making unwanted communication or unwanted contact with you.1
