Familiar with the specific legal challenges of harassment suits, the domestic violence defense attorneys at the Law Office of Mark Keller provide the aggressive criminal defense you need to achieve the best possible outcome on your case.
New Mexico Harassment Law
A misdemeanor offense, harassment is defined in New Mexico law as the conscious pursuit of a pattern of conduct that includes:
- The intent to annoy
- The intent to alarm
- The intent to terrorize
The pattern of conduct documented by the victim must serve no lawful purpose and must cause substantial emotional distress in order to be harassment. Harassment must include a pattern of conduct and cannot reflect a single, isolated incident.
