My question involves criminal law for the state of: VA
Basically the texts are from the wife of a man I had an affair with. The affair ended but she won't leave me alone.
For the last six months I have been getting horrible emails and texts but have mostly ignored them because I knew she was angry. I felt like I deserved the harassment. I usually get at least a message a week calling me a nasty whore and such.
But now she has texted me that she was going to "cut me ear to ear", "put me in the ground", and also sent a text saying that she "absolutely is threatening my life".
Over the past six months I have asked her to stop and she has not. I have not engaged the texts & emails but I have responded to a few. I have not made any threats to her.
What can I do? Is it illegal to threaten one's life? I called my phone carrier and they said that texts could be subpenia (?) if I go to court.
I just want her to leave me alone!
Any info is greatly appreciated,
ETA: I have blocked her from both my emails but hate to change my phone number as I have had it for years.
