Fort Collins Harassment Attorney: What is Harassment?

Harassment is charged frequently in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Estes Park. This is because the statute is vague, and it is extremely easy to accuse someone of Harassment.

This is why it is vital to work with an experienced criminal defense attorney if you have been accused. Learn more about Harassment in Larimer County.

Larimer County Menacing Lawyer: What is Menacing?

Menacing is charged whenever a person allegedly places another person in fear of “imminent serious bodily injury.” Menacing charges are often a class 3 misdemeanor, but when a deadly weapon is used, it becomes a class 5 felony. Surprisingly, there doesn’t even have to be an actual weapon present in order to be charged with the felony – if the alleged victim “reasonably believes” a deadly weapon to be present, the District Attorney will charge the more serious form of Menacing. Charges are often inflated in court, which is why you need an experienced lawyer at your side to fight for justice. Learn more about Menacing in Larimer County.
