Accused of Harassment in Phoenix?
Harassment in Domestic Violence Cases
Harassment is a serious criminal charge and is often charged as a felony.
It is the charge that will be filed against an individual who is accused
of doing acts with the purpose of alarming, annoying or harassing a family
member, ex-partner or other domestic partner - often it is in relation to
domestic violence cases. The charge could come about when an individual is trying to communicate
with the ex-partner about child care issues, retrieving their personal
items from a former shared home, or other situation.

yourself whether your actions were legitimate or not. This offense requires
