Unlawful Harassment occurs when another willfully annoys, harasses, alarms, or acts in a way that is detrimental to another and such a person’s actions serve no legal or legitimate purpose. This statute also requires that the harassing behavior occur on more than one occasion or through a course of conduct.
There’s much at stake when petitioners prevail in anti-harassment cases. Respondents may be restrained from contact, prohibited from going to certain locations and required to surrender weapons. The respondent’s liberties and freedoms may be compromised. Furthermore, a subsequent violation of the court’s protection order is a gross misdemeanor and/or possible a felony.
