Utah Harassment Charges
In Utah, the violent crime of harassment is committed when a person intends to frighten another by communicating either orally or in written form a threat to commit a violent felony, such as aggravated assault, homicide, or other violent crime. It can be something as simple as saying “I’m going to kill you” out of anger when confronted with something you perceive as threatening.
Harassment can also quickly turn into charges of stalking if committed more than once. Indeed, stalking and harassment charges often go hand in hand.
The penalties for harassment, if convicted, can result in months in jail, probation, protective orders, and significant fines.
