Harassment Laws

Cyberharassment and Online Harassment includes harassing email, texts and other electronic messages – but the messages or posts are sent to annoy or harass, and do not contain credible threats. California Penal Code 653.2 P.C. covers this type of Internet harassment.


Has an ex threatened to post your private, intimate photos or videos Online? Did your ex send intimate photos to your boss or co-workers? Read more about California Penal Code 647(j)(4) P.C., known as the Revenge P o rn law.


Is somebody chatting with your child using a phone app, or exchanging explicit photos in text messages? The California law which governs such actions is Penal Code 288.2 P.C., Harmful Matter Sent with Intent to Seduce a Minor.


Online Impersonation with the intent to defraud, threaten, intimidate or harm another person is illegal, see California Penal Code 528.5 P.C., Online Impersonation with Intent to Cause Harm.


Annoying phone calls, text messages, emails and photos or videos sent with the intent to harass or annoy is against the law, refer to California Penal Code 653m P.C., Electronic Communication with Intent to Annoy.

California also provides for Civil actions to recover damages as the result for many of the criminal violations related to Online Harassment.


These laws include:

Did your ex hack your computer? Think your computer was hacked? Read more about California Penal Code 502 P.C., Unauthorized Access to Computer


Criminal Threats are treated as a serious crime in California. While these threats can be a component of Cyberstalking, they can also be pursued as separate charges. Threats sent by phone, email, text, or other forms like "posts" on social media,  where the intent is to cause the victim(s) sustainable fear, is governed by Penal Code 422 P.C., Criminal Threats.


Recording a person with a cell phone or video cam, in a place where there is a reasonable expectation of privacy (inside a bedroom or bathroom) is against the law; California Penal Code 647(j) P.C., Disorderly Conduct Voyeurism


Extortion, by threat of exposing private photos, videos or personal information is a Felony in California, see California Penal Code 518 and Penal Code 519 P.C.


Another serious crime, and different than Cyberharassment, Cyberstalking is a pattern of behavior with credible threats of harm or other malicious behavior. Details can be found under California Penal Code 646.9 P.C., which also addresses offline Stalking.
