Hey, this is (not) John Grisham. This was a tough piece for me. I learned more about law than I ever thought I would, resulting in a very interesting and potentially suspicious Google history. It was worth it.
Just a note: This story is a fictionalized account of stalking and abuse. It isn’t meant to romanticize this criminal behavior. Stalking is something that sends chills down my spine. If you or someone you know is going through this, please don’t be afraid to seek help. There is hope.
