HarassmentAccording to Washington law, criminal harassment is when a person threatens physical violence against another person. Criminal harassment is most often charged in Bellevue domestic violence situations, or when someone threatens injury or abuse to another person in their family. Threatening damage to another person's property, confining or restraining another person, or attempting to damage someone else's metal security may also qualify as criminal harassment.

The Different Forms of Harassment

The most common form of harassment is simply when a person unlawfully threatens to cause bodily injury, property damage, or to physically restrain another person. This threat can be made either by words or by a person’s conduct. This form of harassment is a gross misdemeanor which means the maximum penalty is 364 days in jail and a $5,000 fine. This can rise to class C felony if you threatened to kill the individual or you have a prior conviction of harassment against the same person or their family.

If the harassment was due to the victim’s perceived race, color, ancestry, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, or a physical, mental, or sensory handicap, then you will be facing a malicious harassment charge. This charge is a class C felony which means the maximum penalty is 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Another form of harassment is telephone harassment. This is when you make calls with the intent to harass, intimidate, torment, or embarrass the person. This can take on a variety of different forms such as calling a person repeatedly throughout the night or using profane or lewd language. This type of harassment is a gross misdemeanor.
