While most states require a threat to be made as an element of the crime, not all do so. In a few states, the term stalking encompasses both types of stalking, with non-threatening stalking a misdemeanor and the same behavior with a threat to be aggravated stalking, a felony. See, Fla. Stat. Ann. 784.048; Mo. Rev. Stat. 565.225; Nev. Rev. Stat. 200.575; Ohio Rev. Code Ann. 2903.211. Also compare Mich. Comp. L. 750.411h (stalking) with 750.411I (aggravated stalking).
