Another "He Said, She Said" Arrest for aggravated stalking.
Unfortunately, under our current stalking Laws, all a disgruntled EX has to do is keep calling the Police with her new boyfriend, or other co conspirators as "witnesses" you stalked her.
This poor man will have the stalking arrest forever on his record, even if he wins in court!
Tampa teacher charged with aggravated stalking
By Alexandra Zayas, Times Staff Writer
TAMPA — A Hillsborough County teacher was arrested Monday and charged with aggravated stalking after, deputies say, he called his ex-wife and threatened her with violence.
Steven Ernest Hoskinson, 50, used to teach at Smith Middle School but was out for much of last year for health reasons. He was set to start the school year as a math teacher at Rampello Downtown Partnership School, but the Hillsborough School District has sent a letter telling him to stay home.
District spokesman Steve Hegarty said Hoskinson will remain on a paid leave of absence until the School Board votes on whether to suspend his pay.
Hoskinson and his ex-wife divorced seven years ago. Court records show she filed a domestic violence complaint against him in May, but a judge dismissed it, citing insufficient evidence.
He then was accused of calling his ex-wife and threatening to bash her face in, said Hillsborough sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter. He was picked up Monday on a warrant at his Davis Islands home at 6:20 a.m. and released from the Orient Road Jail on $2,000 bail shortly after.
