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 others try to address the explosive and dangerous growth of such conduct.
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.
