He sends unwelcome flowers and gifts to Laurisa's home and both her mother, Linda (Shanna Reed) and father, Nelson (John Martin) confront him in the hopes of getting him to stop. However, his conduct only escalates. Curt (Tom Kurlander) follows Laurisa not only to her school, to marching band practice, to being out with friends - there is nothing he won't do to harass her. The Anellos report his actions to police but are told nothing can be done as Florida state laws protect him. When he continues to show up at her school, they take him to court. Curt ignores the court order to stay away from Laurisa and carries on. Again, Curt goes to court where two judges order him to stay away or risk jail time. Laurisa becomes a prisoner in her home, loses friends, and can't drive anywhere at night because of Curt. Linda finally has enough of law enforcement's inability to act and with the help of a state representative goes to Tallahassee to lobby for a state stalking law. While she is in Tallahassee, Curt strikes again - this time by trapping Laurisa in her own garage. Fortunately, a police officer and Mr. Anello catch Curt red handed and he was arrested. This story is one of the cases that led to the implementation of Florida’s anti-stalking statute in 1992.
