Sexual Harassment Can Have Criminal Penalties

While sexual harassment is most often discussed in the workplace, harassment can happen anywhere and some allegations can result in serious criminal charges.

The offense of harassment involves emailing, calling, or otherwise communicating with another person intending to annoy, torment, embarrass, or scare them. If you describe sexual acts or solicit sexual acts, you can be charged with sexual harassment. This offense is a Class B misdemeanor and can be increased to a Class A misdemeanor if you have prior convictions. If convicted, you may face up to one year in jail and/or a fine of $4,000.

In some cases, charges may be increased to stalking, which is a 3rd-degree felony and carries a potential penalty of two to ten years in prison. If someone is alleging that sexual harassment rose to the level of unwanted sexual contact, you may even be charged with more severe sexual charges and may even have to register as a sex offender if convicted.

Defending Against Sex Crime Allegations

The Guilty

Sometimes, people accused of sexual harassment or related criminal charges committed the offense and the prosecutor has strong evidence of their actions. However, simply because you know you committed a crime does not mean you should not have a skilled criminal defense attorney representing you.

Our attorneys at The Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates can help you in many ways throughout your case, even if you know you are guilty. We will ensure your rights are preserved and will present any possible legal defense that may help your case. In addition, we can negotiate the most favorable plea bargain for you to limit the consequences you face.

The Innocent

There are few things more frightening than being wrongfully accused of a crime you didn’t commit. People may falsely accuse you of harassment for many reasons, including revenge after a breakup or another vengeful reason.

In addition, a harassment victim may simply be mistaken about your identity if the harassment did not occur in person. However, even though you know that you are innocent, you may still be convicted if you do not have a strong and effective defense strategy. Our team understands how dire it is that you fight your wrongful charges at trial and have tools to lead the jury to question the prosecutor’s case against you.

A wrongful conviction of sexual harassment or stalking can seriously impact the rest of your life. Not only could you serve jail time but a conviction on your record can have a lasting effect on your professional and personal life. We will do everything in our power to ensure that your name is cleared.
