Harassment, C.R.S. 18-9-111, Ways to be Charged in Denver Metro

What is Harassment in Denver?

A person commits the crime of Harassment, C.R.S. 18-9-111, in Denver if he or she does any one of the following things with the intent to harass another person: a) strike, shove, kick, or touch another person, b) direct obscene language or an obscene gesture at another person in a public place, c) follows a person in or about a public place, e) intimidate another person via telephone or other electronic means, f) make a phone call or cause a phone to ring with no purpose of legitimate conversation, g) makes repeated communications at inconvenient hours that invade the privacy of another, or h) repeated insults, taunts, challenges or makes communication in offensively coarse language to another in a manner likely to provoke a violent or disorderly response. This is just a summary of this statute, but you can see how this law encompasses almost every situation where a person might outwardly express his or her dissatisfaction with another. That is why it is so easily abused.

Using the Law to Harass Another in Arapahoe and Douglas County

Nobody wants to be harassed, and nobody should be subjected to harassment. But conflict is part of human nature and I have never met another person who has gone through life without being harassed and without harassing another person. Shoving, kicking, insulting, and intimidating a person is never okay, but there is another way people are getting away with harassment in Arapahoe and Douglas County. Some people use the harassment statute to harass others.

Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney | Your First Line of Defense in Jefferson County

When we hear a news story about a high profile person involved in harassment allegations, we make our judgments based on how well the story was told. But when a client comes to our office I listen to his or her side of the story. I usually learn that there is more than what is in the police report. Jefferson County sheriff deputies or Arvada police make their decisions based on what they can gather at the scene. It is my job to make sure that the person spinning a story and using the law to harass my client is not successful.
