Arizona law threatening and intimidating


23-Nov-2019 23:57

Intimidation can also be a civil offense, in addition to a criminal offense, in some U.

Arizona law makes it a crime for any person to harass another person and includes harassment done via electronic means (such as telephone, the Internet, social media sites, texting, email, instant messages, or other similar means).

Intimidation means to make fearful or to put into fear.

Generally, proof of actual fear is not required in order to establish intimidation.

Intimidation related to prejudice and discrimination may include conduct "which annoys, threatens, intimidates, alarms, or puts a person in fear of their safety...because of a belief or perception regarding such person's race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, religion, religious practice, age, disability or sexual orientation, regardless of whether the belief or perception is correct." Intimidation may be manifested in such manner as physical contacts, glowering countenance, emotional manipulation, verbal abuse, making someone feel lower than you, purposeful embarrassment and/or actual physical assault.(4) Give any false or misleading information or testimony or refrain from giving any testimony, information, document or thing, relating to the commission of a crime, to an attorney representing a criminal defendant.
