Aggravated Harassment Cases
Aggravated Harassment is one of the most serious allegations that you may face, even though it sometimes feels like it is not very serious at all. The punishment for Aggravated Harassment in New York can mean years on probation, or even in prison. If you or a loved one is facing Aggravated Harassment charges, choosing an attorney to defend your case is one of the most important, if not the most important decisions you will ever have to make. It is absolutely critical that you retain the services of a thorough, professional and highly experienced Aggravated Harassment Lawyer with a proven track record as soon as you possibly can.
Aggravated Harassment is defined in New York Penal Law 240 and may be charged as a misdemeanor, all the way up to a felony. It should also be noted that many Aggravated Harassment cases result in the court issuing an Order of Protection restricting contact between the person charged, and their family. Sometimes a person is prevented from contacting their children, even when the children were not victims, and were not even present during the incident which triggers the criminal charges. Violating the order of protection is very serious, and may result in charges of Criminal Contempt which may result in jail time.
Aggravated Harassment charges may result from seemingly innocent conduct like simply repeatedly calling someone for who has asked you not to contact them. These cases are even more difficult when there are matrimonial cases pending, or when there has been a long term relationship between the parties involved. If you are facing charges of Aggravated Harassment, it is essential that you consult with a seasoned Aggravated Harassment Lawyer as soon as possible.
