Understanding Harassment in New Jersey
In New Jersey, harassment is considered a serious offense that can lead to criminal charges. Harassment is defined by The New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice 2C:33-4, covering many situations. It can involve engaging in conduct designed to seriously annoy or alarm another person. Conduct considered harassment can range from verbal abuse to physical threats.
The following common examples that could be deemed as harassment:
- Unwanted, intimidating, or threatening communication
- Offensive language or gestures
- Invasion of privacy
- Physical threats or attacks
In New Jersey, the penalties for a harassment conviction can be severe and life-altering. A conviction can result in thousands of dollars in fines and over a year in jail, depending on your specific charges. It's important to note that a conviction can also lead to a permanent criminal record, impacting future employment opportunities, housing applications, and more.
