Harassment in Bellevue

Get Professional Help From Our Professional Bellevue Harassment Attorneys

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.

    Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.

    Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.

    Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!

    From start to finish with the DUI process Jason Newcombe's office has been more than helpful, friendly, honest and respectful.From the beginning, Jason was on our side and fighting our battle with us. He flat out laid out our options honestly and gave us his opinion on which was the best way to go, but never made the decision for us. Jason is very professional yet personable. We are completely satisfied with our end result. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer to be on your side.

    I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
