Harassment in Olympia

HarassmentHarassment can take on many different forms which can range from a gross misdemeanor all the way up to a class C felony. With a conviction, you are facing jail, fines, no-contact orders, and more! If you are being accused of harassment, contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your legal rights and begin preparing a defense.

This can rise to a class C felony if you have a prior conviction of harassment against the same person or their family, or you threatened to kill the person.

If you harass someone because of their perceived race, color, ancestry, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, or a physical, mental, or sensory handicap, then you could be charged with malicious harassment. This form of harassment is a class C felony which means the maximum penalty is 5 years in prison and a$10,000 fine.

For example, this can be done by using profane or lewd language, by calling at all hours of the night, or by calling repeatedly and incessantly.

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.

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 couldn't be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney. Robert
