What Is Harassment in Colorado?
Harassment is defined under the Colorado Revised Statutes § 18-9-11, also known as “Kiana Arellano’s Law.” A key element to the legal definition of harassment is the requirement of intent on the part of the person committing the harassing act.
Typically, harassment is charged as a misdemeanor, and depending on the circumstances of the case, a defendant may face either a class 1, class 2, or class 3 misdemeanor harassment charge.
Examples of harassment include
- Striking, shoving, kicking, or otherwise touching another person
- Directing obscene language or gestures at another person in public
- Following a person around a public place
- Phone and texting harassment
- Email harassment
The penalties associated with a harassment charge can include significant fines and imprisonment if convicted. Not only will these consequences affect you in the short term, but they have the potential to threaten your entire future.
Additionally, it is not uncommon for harassment charges to also involve domestic violence ramifications. These can include the issuance of a Mandatory Protection Order, as well as domestic violence treatment and classes.
Furthermore, if you have any family court matters pending, a domestic violence conviction for assault or harassment can have a significant impact on the outcome of those cases.
