Unwanted Contact

Feburay 20, 2008

Dear Mr. Korff,

The court case is coming up next week. I believe the truth of what actually occurred will be brought forth and the jury will render a decision accordingly. But that is not the reason for this email.

As you recall, I have given specific instructions to members of this agency to not respond to your continued communications which have been threatening, highly inflammatory, insulting, and certainly unwanted contact.  The issues will be dealt with in accordance to Oregon law; of which, I am certain justice will prevail. As I have mentioned previously, anything relative to the pending case must be dealt with through the attorneys.

Your personal issues will be dealt with at the appropriate time. I will not allow your personal conflict to interfere with your brother's trial, and that is to protect your brothers rights.

The reason for this email is this:

You have, and continue, to violate Oregon law.  I advise you, it must stop immediately. I refer to Oregon Revised Statute 163.732 Stalking.

ORS 163.732 Stalking. (1) A person commits the crime of stalking if:

(a) The person knowingly alarms or coerces another person or a member of that person's immediate family or household by engaging in repeated and unwanted contact with the other person;

(b) It is objectively reasonable for a person in the victim's situation to have been alarmed or coerced by the contact; and

(c) The repeated and unwanted contact causes the victim reasonable apprehension regarding the personal safety of the victim or a member of the victim's immediate family or household.

To provide you with the Oregon definitions I submit the following, ORS 163.730:

(d) Sending or making written or electronic communications in any form to the other person;

(e) Communicating with business entities with the intent of affecting some right or interest of the other person.

Please, feel free to discuss this with your brother's attorney, or anyone else you see fit.
