What is Harassment-1st in a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, criminal prosecution?

First degree harassment is the most serious type of harassment a person can commit. 


It requires that the defendant commit the harassment "involving a threat to commit a forcible felony," including death threats.


First degree harassment can also be charged as a repeat offense. Anyone who commits harassment and has previously been convicted of harassment three or more times under this section or any similar statute during the preceding ten years commits harassment in the first degree.
