City Councilman Says he was “Stalked” in Jacksonville

A homeless Jacksonville man was arrested for Aggravated Stalking, a third degree felony. He is accused of stalking Councilman Daniel Davis by threatening to kill Davis and taking his picture off the wall at City Hall.

To “stalk” someone under Florida law, you have to willfully, maliciously, repeatedly follow, and make a credible threat with the intent to put someone in reasonable fear for their life. To be convicted, the prosecutor has to prove that the homeless man had the intent to cause Davis to reasonably fear for his life. The homeless man faces up to 5 years in prison if convicted of the criminal charge.
