The Domestic Violence Crime of Harassment

Harassment consists of displaying the intention or threat to alarm, harass, or annoy another. This can be accompanied by physical action such as kicking, punching, or otherwise making contact with the person that is not considered friendly. Harassment also consists of following another person around in public areas with the intention to alarm, harass, or annoy. These both may be criminally charged as second-degree harassment.

Aggravated harassment is a more serious domestic violence crime. This crime is covered under New York Penal Law 240.30 which describes it as the intention to harass, annoy, threaten, or alarm another. It occurs when the offender communicates in some form to the victim or causes such a communication to be started which has the above intention. The communication may be by telephone, through the mail, or through email.

You may be found guilty of harassment, for instance, if you call someone with no real purpose for the phone call whether you ever speak to the person or not. Another example would be contacting the victim to harass them with foul language for whatever reason or grievance you believe you may have. If you engage in this behavior in a domestic situation, such as to an ex-wife, former girlfriend, or any other household member, you may be charged with this crime; you will need a lawyer to help minimize the consequences and expedite the matter of being released from custody.
