INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Supreme Court has upheld a man’s stalking conviction for driving behind a college student for more than an hour through five Indiana counties.
The court ruled unanimously Tuesday that 56-year-old Rodney W. Falls of Valparaiso was properly convicted last year of felony stalking.
Court records show that on Feb. 13, 2018, he began following a young woman who had ignored him when he waved at her at a Valparaiso stoplight.
The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that Falls followed her about 70 miles (112 kilometers) through five counties to the city of Warsaw.
When the woman arrived at Warsaw’s police station, court records say Falls pulled between her vehicle and the building, and she drove off. She soon returned to the station and managed to run inside.
