Harassment—Annoying Phone Calls
Accused of harassing someone over the phone? Rely on Attorney Fell to protect your rights.
Making a few phone calls may seem harmless enough. But if these phone calls can be construed as threatening, obscene, or part of a pattern or harassing behavior, you may find yourself in serious legal trouble.
Annoying Phone Calls and Restraining Orders
Often the first sign that you are in trouble for your phone activities is that you have been served with a temporary restraining order. At this point, you may be very distraught and your first instinct might be to call the very person who has requested the order against you. Don’t!
You must of course resist this urge. Even if you feel the restraining order is unfair, it is still valid until it expires or is canceled by a judge, and you need to obey it or else risk charges for restraining order violations.
However, you do need to call someone: Michael L. Fell.
As your criminal defense attorney, Michael L. Fell can guide you through all the steps you will now need to take, including requesting a hearing on the restraining order and preparing a strong defense argument against any criminal charges arising from the phone calls.
Get the Right Defense Strategy for Your Case
Harassing or annoying phone calls can be prosecuted under a variety of different statutes, depending on the circumstances of your case. This could include:
- Annoying phone calls
- Criminal threats
- Restraining order violations
Naturally this will affect the way Michael L. Fell approaches the case. For example, a charge for plain old “annoying phone calls” can typically be disproven simply by arguing that you did not intend to harass or annoy anyone. But if your phone calls lead to a charge of a restraining order violation, your intent is irrelevant.
You can rely on Attorney Fell to select the right strategy for your case based on the evidence and the charges, and work hard to bring your case to the best possible resolution.
