Harassment involves pursuing a course of conduct which a person either knew or ought to have known amounted to harassment. There is a more serious offence of harassment that causes a person to fear that violence will be be used. Harassment offences can cover a wide range of activities including, in certain circumstances, text messages and telephone calls. Such offences can also be alleged to have taken place over a significant period of time. Very often allegations of harassment arise in the context of the end of a relationship.
Convictions for harassment offences can have a hugely detrimental effect on an individual’s character and future prospects. It is essential that advice is sought at an early stage where harassment is being alleged.
