Crimes

Even if you do not qualify for an order of protection or injunction, the abuser may have committed a crime. If you call the police, they may arrest him/her for a crime and you may get an order of protection through the criminal court. Remember that even if you do have an order of protection or injunction, you can still report him/her to the police if you believe s/he committed a crime against you.

In our Abuse Using Technology section, you can learn the types of behaviors that are considered a misuse of technology. Some of these behaviors might be recognized as a crime depending on the specific laws of your state.
