Depending upon the state where the charged misdemeanor stalking has occurred and the degree of what actually was the factual basis for the misdemeanor stalking charge, the charge could be a crime of moral turpitude. Most likely it is not in my opinion based upon your brief question.

Crimes of moral turpitude are those involving dishonesty, fraud, theft, forgery, assault, battery, mayhem and murder.
