Protecting Your Rights And Freedom

Aggravated harassment is a heightened crime of harassment and can be verbal, physical or even a form of cyber stalking. Because of the nature of the crime itself, the consequences are more severe, and include the possibility of jail time, fines and probation. A charge of aggravated harassment is a serious allegation, and your freedom depends on an effective defense.

At the criminal defense law firm of The Law Firm of Michael S. Berardino, formerly Mangialardi & Berardino, I am a former prosecutor. From my experience working on the other side, I have knowledge of how the prosecutor will handle your case. I use my understanding of the prosecutor's office to prepare an aggressive defense to protect your rights in New York. Contact us to schedule an appointment with a firm located in both Westchester and New York City who can effectively represent you.

Aggravated Harassment in New York

Prosecutors may charge you with aggravated harassment if they believe that you engaged in unwanted communication or physical harassment via:

  • Personal contact, mail or telephone
  • Email
  • Instant messaging
  • Any other mechanical or electronic means

Harassing phone calls, cyber stalking and Internet harassment may be sufficient grounds for an aggravated harassment charge. Alongside criminal charges for aggravated harassment, the victim may also seek a restraining order to prevent future harassment, which could lead to potential problems involving your ability to continue to reside in your own home.

When you are facing an aggravated harassment charge, I use my experience working in the criminal system to handle your defense. As a skilled and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer and former prosecutor, I have a thorough understanding of New York laws, and I will aggressively challenge an allegation of aggravated harassment.
