As this blog has discussed before, Colorado state law has provisions prohibiting what it calls harassment.
A "harassment" charge in Colorado can be based on a wide range of subjectively interpreted circumstances. This is not a charge that is typically found in other states in America. "Harass," "annoy" and "alarm" are the terms that come into play in a harassment charge. But, what harasses, annoys or alarms one person may not affect another. The circumstances of each unique case are crucial.
Some Colorado residents may be familiar with, "criminal harassment" charges, but, since this is a somewhat different charge than what some others might see in different states, it can require a bit of explanation. In essence, a criminal harassment charge can come up if a person harasses, annoys or alarms another person. Put simply, such a charge could encompass a wide-range of behavior or conduct.
