Intimidating a witness or victim is a serious criminal allegation, and a skilled, knowledgeable Denver defense attorney is required to defend one so accused.
Intimidation or harassment is a personalised form of anti-social behaviour, specifically aimed at particular individuals.
In England and Wales a Criminal Behaviour Order may be obtained where an offender has been convicted of an offence and has engaged, or is likely to engage, in conduct likely to cause harassment, distress or alarm to others and the order is likely to prevent this in the future.
Conditions of the orders may include a ban from the area where the victims live or a specific ban on approaching or communicating with the victims.
Intimidation or harassment may constitute a criminal offence under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 in England & Wales or the Protection from Harassment (Northern Ireland) Order 1997 in Northern Ireland (collectively referred to as ' PHA').
A restraining order may be made in addition to the conviction, or an injunction obtained.
