What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Virginia
Currently I am living with a co-tenant and she has been hostile towards me as well as her mom. I have been hit with hot oven doors, cabinets and been pushed out of the way. They have even gone as far as breaking into my living space. She even went as far as to confront me demanding I give her money or she would take me to court and press false charges on me for hitting her mother with a door. Prior to these incidents I hadnt gone to the police but have asked the magistrate on what I could do. They weren't much help as I waited too long to do anything about it.
Over the past two weeks they've been recording me without my consent. I've found them propping their phones in the windows when I'm in the yard or laying on the couch or standing in the kitchen taking photos and video recording me on their phones.
Today I walked into the kitchen and notice that they had put up a hidden camera hiding in a bonbon box. I have walked upstairs in the kitchen in my undergarments since I wake up before everyone else. I am unaware as how long they've had it there nor was even made aware I was being recorded (didn't consent). I believe that the security camera has audio as well but I'm not certain as I could look up the specs on the model. I took photos of the camera she has hidden.
I no longer feel safe in my home and who knows why she has been recording me... the only thing I can think of is she is using the media to share with my ex-husband and his girlfriend since they are best friends. I need help figuring out what specific charges I can go to the magistrate with. Help? Please? I'm tired of coming home and being harassed, pushed around, or treated malciously.
