What is Harassment-3rd in a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, criminal prosecution?
Third degree harassment is essentially any harassment that is neither second degree nor third degree harassment. The Iowa Code defines in just that way:
"Any other act of harassment is harassment in the third degree. Harassment in the third degree is a simple misdemeanor."
That means that it can be any annoying text message, phone call, writing, social media message, or other harassment that neither involves a threatened injury nor forcible felony, and is not preceded by two or more harassment convictions.
