It is likely a majority of Americans are aware of Tim Tebow, college football star, National Football League failure and now Major League Baseball hopeful who signed a minor league deal with the New York Mets and has kept fueling the media fire by attending spring training down in Florida. Many Americans love Tim Tebow, not necessarily due to his on-field successes, which have been few since college, but because of his extremely positive and enchanting attitude and demeanor on and off the field. His good looks and charm may have been too much for one fan however.
Recently, a 36 year old Colorado resident was arrested following multiple attempts at stalking Tebow. She was initially found loitering at the Mets spring training facility for days asking people about Tebow. When questioned by local authorities about her actions, she went on to state that she was in a relationship with him.
A background check revealed that she previously was arrested for indecent exposure, though the charge was dropped. She was then asked to leave the facility and not come back. She returned two days later, and was promptly arrested on trespassing charges. Although the charge is relatively minor, typically a misdemeanor, the story has gotten national attention.
It is important to not underestimate the effect that any guilty verdict can have on a person. A criminal record can limit a person's ability to obtain a job and could lead to additional repercussions down the road. If you are facing criminal charges, you may want to consider reaching out to a criminal defense professional to protect yourself and your future.
