Harassment Denver Lawyer: Woman Follows, Punches and Yells at Victim

Posted by Terry O'Malley | Feb 22, 2016 | 0 Comments

I've watched some interesting interactions on TV between women who become jealous if another woman engages with someone they have feelings for. However, I think the interaction I read about in the news takes the cake. According to the news, a woman became angry that another woman was talking with her husband. She began harassing the woman by banging on the victim's car window at a traffic light. Then, she followed the victim in her car and yelled at her at each stop light. When the victim drove to the police station, the woman continued to yell and scream at her. She even punched her and pulled the victim's hair. The woman was charged with multiple crimes, including Harassment and Assault.  For the purposes of this blog, we'll focus on Harassment. If you've been charged with Harassment in Denver, Douglas County or anywhere else in Colorado, contact a Harassment Denver lawyer at our office immediately.

2.Use obscene language or make an obscene gesture to or at another person in public;

3.Follow someone in or about a public place;

4.Directly or indirectly initiate communication with someone or direct language towards someone (anonymously or otherwise) over the phone or over the computer to harass or threaten bodily injury or property damage;

5.Make any comment, request, suggestion, or proposal over the phone or computer that's obscene;

6.Make a phone call or cause a phone to ring repeatedly, whether or not a conversation happens / with no intent to have a conversation;

7.Make repeated communications at inconvenient hours that invade someone's privacy and interfere with someone's enjoyment and use of their residence / property;

8.Repeatedly insult, taunt, challenge or make communications in offensively coarse language to another in a manner likely to provoke a violent or disorderly response.

Because the woman followed the victim, yelled at her, and even subjected her to physical contact, she could be charged with Harassment. Harassment is a class 3 misdemeanor in Colorado, except it's a class 1 misdemeanor if committed with intent to intimidate or harass another person because of their race, color, religion, ancestry or origin.
