Woman stands up to accused stalker

CLEVELAND, OH -

A man is going back to jail on new charges in a stalking case after he got a break in court once before.

A Cleveland court judge ordered Raymel Dix to serve 108 days in jail, and he's still facing felony charges in Cuyahoga County Court.

After months of living in terror, Valerie Trotter is not looking over her shoulder anymore. 

She helped send Dix back to jail. Trotter says Dix called her dozens and dozens of times.

This, even after he'd been convicted of menacing and violating a protection order--making Trotter's life miserable.

Judge Lauren Moore let Dix out of jail last time early. Dix said he had a flight to California to go to a Veterans Affairs hospital.

Instead, Trotter says she got constant calls from Dix, again. And for months, police couldn't find Dix. And still, he denies any harassment.

But Judge Moore pointed out, "She testified right now that, not only did you call her one time, you called her multiple times.  You left here, you promised that you would go to California. And you also promised that you would have no contact with her."

Trotter told 19 Action News, "I got tired of looking over my shoulder worrying would he jump out of the bushes so I fought for myself. I stood up for myself."
