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.

Harassment-Accusations.jpgHow Can a Person get Charged with Harassment in Denver?

Harassment, C.R.S. 18-9-111, can be charged when Denver police decide someone was hit, shoved or followed in a public place. Harassment charges can also be filed if someone is yelled at or they emailed obscenities, or if someone is the repeated victim of telephone calls at inconvenient hours which invaded that person's privacy. These are just a few ways a person can be charged with Harassment. To make matters worse, if any of the above mentioned things is directed at someone who is or has been in an intimate relationship with the accused, then a Domestic Violence enhancer is added to the mix, increasing the severity of the charges. As I have written before, I believe Harassment is one of the most overly abused charges in Colorado.
