In order to prove harassment, the prosecution must demonstrate that someone pursued a course of conduct, which amounted to the harassment of another person and they knew the anxiety it would have caused.
Harassment can include attending someone’s address without permission regularly and frequently or contacting someone by text, phone call or by social media.
A harassment conviction can carry a custodial sentence of six months to five years.
