Harassing Email Rhode Island Lawyer

Have You Been Arrested on a Rhode Island Criminal Harassing Email Charge?

Since the Dot Com era, numerous cyber crimes have followed, one of which is harassing emails. Even with so-called evidence of incessant and annoying emails from your account, there’s a good chance to prove your innocence.

Some of the defenses for harassing email include:

  • Two-way communications, or that the emails sent were executed as a result of emails, or received
  • A third party hacked into the defendant’s account
  • Someone posed under a pseudonym in an instant messaging forum

Ask a lawyer what’s the best possible strategy for defense. Contact the Island law offices as soon as possible.

Definition of Assault and Battery:

Rhode Island Code Chapter 11-52-4.2 defines Harassing Email as repeatedly sending annoying or harassing emails over a period of time. It doesn’t have to entail threat or violence, but the deciding factors include repeat and unwanted emails from a sender. This crime is also used interchangeably with the term online harassment.

This crime is relatively new. During the inception of the internet, many offenders would hide under cloaks of anonymity to carry out online harassment. However, with newer technology available, it’s easier to detect hackers and stalkers through expert police personnel.

John R. Grasso has also worked in law enforcement, and now as a lawyer, he’s ready to defend those who have been falsely accused. Each case that’s processed in the law offices, are given the same attention to detail, as if it were his own trial. He will work with experts to trace the emails and uncover the evidence in your favor.

In many instances these crimes are false accusations, or may be an instance of mistaken identity. Refer to such groups as Cyber Angels or the Stalking Resource Center for more information about harassing emails, and other types of cyber stalking crimes.

Contact the law offices of John R. Grasso today.
