Acts and statements that would constitute criminal offenses in Colorado if made “in real life” are just as illegal if made in cyberspace.
This includes harassment, stalking, and bullying. Online harassment comes with serious consequences in Colorado, as our state along with other states try to address the explosive and dangerous growth of such conduct.
If your facing assault charges in Colorado Springs you need to understand the charges and potential penalties. Assault can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. The nature of the assault and the degree of harm it caused will determine the seriousness of the consequences you may face.
Criminal harassment is defined differently by each state. In most states it involves conducting behavior with the intent to alarm, annoy, torment or terrorize. In general, the behavior must cause a credible threat to a person’s safety or that of their family before it rises to the level of harassment.
