Being charged with stalking is a felony offense. For a first-time offender, the sentence is three to seven months. But a Class A misdemeanor first-time offender can receive a maximum sentence of one year and a $2,500 fine. Why is the misdemeanor more than a felony? Lisa Moots, executive director of the Kansas Sentencing Commission, said that under Kansas Sentencing Guidelines, stalking involving a first-time offender would be a level 10 felony crime. It would carry a penalty of presumptive probation upon conviction. A prison term would be imposed for the offense only if the defendant had two or more prior person felony convictions.
