Charges relating to Harassment in Denver, Colorado (C.R.S. 18-9-111) often result from someone who is upset with you over a broken relationship. We feel that the police charge this “catch all” crime too often – particularly when they know that no crime occurred. This statute covers a variety of alleged crimes and can be very complicated to defend if you are unfamiliar with the court process.
In Denver, Arapahoe, and Douglas County, Harassment can be pushing or touching, following someone, using obscenities toward a person, having threatening communication with a person over the phone, calling someone repeatedly at inconvenient hours, of making comments towards another person in a way that would make that person want to fight you. All of these subsections of the law have to be completed with the intent to harass, annoy, or alarm another person.
A common example of cases in Adams, Jefferson, and Weld County exist where the District Attorney tries to charge a person with Harassment when two people MUTUALLY engage in a pushing match. When our attorney’s handle cases like these, we fight against the government because a person has the right to defend themselves. Another typical case in Lakewood, Aurora, and Denver is where a person follows a person in or about a public place. No one is hurt, yet the police get involved.
