Criminal Harassment Defense Attorney in Washington
Harassment is defined by law as knowingly threatening to cause bodily injury or damaging property to another person. The offense is a gross misdemeanor except when a threat of death is communicated, in which case the crime becomes a Class C Felony. The threat often arises in the context of domestic violence. A criminal defense lawyer can protect your rights on such a case, and help the truth come to light. Attorney Erin Bradley McAleer is an experienced defense attorney in handling harassment and other criminal charges and can give your case the attention it deserves in Washington.
In harassment cases, the proof usually is limited to the word of one person alone. Occasionally, a threat will be communicated through a text message, email, or left on a voice message. In order for the harassment to rise to the level of a criminal offense, the threat must place the alleged victim in a reasonable fear that the threat will be carried out.
