Penalties for Stalking in Virginia

The act of stalking is defined as a repetition of contact directed at an individual, which places him or her in reasonable fear of bodily injury, criminal sexual assault, or death. It is considered a Class 1 misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum jail sentence of one year and a fine of up to $2,500. Additionally, you will receive a civil protective order (restraining order) issued against you.

If you are convicted of a second offense of stalking within the previous five years with the same victim and is convicted of violating a protective order, it can become a Class 6 felony offense. A Class 6 felony is punishable by a maximum prison sentence of five years.
