Serious Representation When You Have Serious Legal Problems
Harassment is defined as repeatedly committing acts that serve no legitimate purpose to annoy or alarm another person. Stalking is an intent to place another person in reasonable fear of bodily injury, or otherwise cause emotional distress through repeated acts. A constant pattern of unwanted phone calls, e-mails or texts as well as terroristic threats can be considered harassment or stalking.
Depending on the circumstances, the charge can be a misdemeanor or felony with a maximum penalty of seven years in jail. Harassment and stalking charges are often involved with domestic violence issues or divorce and may lead to protection from abuse (PFA) orders.
