The penalty for Aggravated Harassment in the Second Degree in Queens is up to one year in jail.
Aggravated Harassment is a crime that’s often described as the “phone harassment statute,” though any form of communication – email, texts, letters – that is geared to harass, annoy, alarm, threaten, or otherwise lacks legitimate purpose can result in this charge.
Aggravated Harassment is often alleged in bad breakups, and one result you may have to deal with is an Order of Protection placed against you.
These are dangerous grounds for you, and getting the help of a good lawyer to minimize your risk is paramount.
