Lynnwood, Washington Harassment Defense Attorney
WHAT IS HARASSMENT?
Harassment charges can be very complicated. Harassment is often verbal and is subject to the victim's emotions and interpretation; you may be charged with making a threat that you did not even realize could be interpreted as such. In addition, the victim must also have reasonable fear that the threat will be carried out. Once you have been notified or have heard that a charge of harassment has been made against you, you should speak to an experienced and qualified domestic violence defense attorney in Washington.
TYPES OF HARASSMENT
A charge of harassment can include any of the following allegations:
- The threat of causing bodily harm
- The threat of damaging property belonging to another
- Restraining or confining another individual
- Committing an act with the intent to harm another either physically or mentally
In Washington State, the courts are very reluctant to go easy on defendants charged with harassment and penalties may include significant jail time and large fine amounts. However, the prosecutor has to prove that you did indeed commit the harassment as charged. Therefore, you need someone who knows what it takes to contest these kinds of charges.
