Lake County Harassment Attorney
Serving Clients in Lake County, Chaffee County and El Paso County, Colorado
A variety of behaviors may be considered harassment under Colorado law. A harassment charge alleges that a defendant intended to harass, annoy, or alarm another person with physical contact, obscene language or gestures, contact by telephone or computer, or by publicly following the other person or invading that person’s privacy. Just spitting on someone is sufficient “physical contact” to constitute persecution. If you face a harassment or sexual harassment charge in Colorado, get legal help immediately and call the law offices of experienced Colorado criminal defense attorney Lindsey Parlin.
Ms. Parlin understands that well-intended words and actions can sometimes be misinterpreted. One successful defense against harassment may be that a defendant had no intent to harm or harass. Sometimes, a First Amendment defense based on protected free speech is a successful strategy. In other cases, the harassment allegation can simply be discredited. The specifics of the case determine if the persecution is charged as a Class-3 misdemeanor or as a Class-1 misdemeanor. Most harassment charges in Colorado are Class-3 misdemeanors that carry a maximum penalty of 6 months in jail, a $50 fine, and probation. If a victim is targeted for harassment because of that person’s actual or perceived race, color, religion, ancestry, or national origin, the charge becomes a Class-1 misdemeanor that carries a maximum penalty of 18 months in jail and a $5000 fine. Having a harassment conviction on your record could impact your ability to obtain employment in the future.
