Cedar Rapids Criminal Lawyer Explains Second Degree Harassment


Second degree harassment is the a serious misdemeanor, half way between the aggravated misdemeanor offense of first degree harassment and the simple misdemeanor offense of third degree harassment. 

To qualify as harassment in the second degree, harassment must involve a threat to commit bodily injury, or commission of harassment where the defendant has previously been convicted of harassment two times or any similar statute during the preceding ten years.

Threatened Bodily Injury A threat to commit bodily injury is second degree harassment. In the alternative, someone can be charged with second degree harassment if they have twice been convicted of harassment under Iowa law or its equivalent. If you or a loved one has been arrested for a firearms offense in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Waterloo, or other Iowa community, contact DAC-LAW PLC today at 319-389-4276.
