Street Harassment is illegal in AZ

15 Oct

Did you know that harassment is illegal? We’ve paraphrased the law, and given you the statute in case you want to look it up:
ARS 13-2921: Contacts anyone (verbally, written, or electronically) in a manner that harasses; follows someone around after being asked to stop; or commits a harassing act. The statute defines “harassment” as actions that would alarm or annoy a reasonable person, and are directed at a specific person.
Other statutes prohibit threats and intimidation that a person will be physically hurt (13-1202) and touching someone with the intent of injuring, insulting, or provoking them (13-1203, Assault)
