525.070 Harassment
(1) A person is guilty of harassment when, with intent to intimidate, harass, annoy, or alarm another person, he or she:

(a) Strikes, shoves, kicks, or otherwise subjects him to physical contact;

(b) Attempts or threatens to strike, shove, kick, or otherwise subject the person to physical contact;

(c) In a public place, makes an offensively coarse utterance, gesture, or display, or addresses abusive language to any person present;

(d) Follows a person in or about a public place or places;

(e) Engages in a course of conduct or repeatedly commits acts which alarm or seriously annoy such other person and which serve no legitimate purpose; or

(f) Being enrolled as a student in a local school district, and while on school premises, on school-sponsored transportation, or at a school-sponsored event:

1. Damages or commits a theft of the property of another student;

2. Substantially disrupts the operation of the school; or

3. Creates a hostile environment by means of any gestures, written communications, oral statements, or physical acts that a reasonable person under the circumstances should know would cause another student to suffer fear of physical harm, intimidation, humiliation, or embarrassment.

(2)(a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this subsection, harassment is a violation.

(b) Harassment, as defined in paragraph (a) of subsection (1) of this section, is a Class B misdemeanor.

I would say that a jury would find that it could be harassment when you are being followed and video taped while on your own property everytime you move. It is all in how you want to interpet the law. I am sure that most of the people out there would agree, your home is your castle and you souldnt have to worry about some nut next door watching your every move, or harassing you everytime you come out into your own yard, or the dogs being turned loose everytime you come outside. From what I have seen and heard the one's that started this stuff are the one's that really need some help and need to get a life, and leave their neighbors alone.

The world is full of idiots. The only way to avoid them is to stay home and don't go out in public.

Unfortunately reproducing doesn't require a test or a license, so you have all kinds of uneducated, bad gene, no fork family tree freaks having kids. These said kids will be in school with your kids and once they become teenagers will more than likely be a thorn in societies arse because of the sorry parents that had them in the first place.

My best advice is to keep your kid in a city school where there are less of these nonfork family trees walking around bothering others.

there is a girl in her late 20's who has over the past 2 weeks created a pattern / history of constant berating with Fbombs and friends restraining her from action toward my 30's something daughter -

I can't thank you enough for posting these KRS for KY

This will put a stop to this foolishness if we have to have her in court every month for the next year.

do you think it is harassment if your ex-husband mails you a newspaper clipping from where your name appeared in the paper? it was mailed with a child support payment with their name and address on the envelope. i have already been to the county attorney over the same issues before, he was supposed to mail a letter stating he wanted it to stop. all has been quiet for almost 2 months and now this..

A prevevious employee of my husbands, was fired because of several issues. Now that former employee is calling my husbands threatening to have this or that person call me, his wife and tell me false rumors of him sleeping with them, They have also threatened to call children servces! What can I do about this ridiculous childish individuals. They have serious drug addictions and it is very scary to think of what they might actually do.

The legal system cannot assume information. There has to be direct proof of the person or persons in question and who it's coming from. unless names are established and shows direct intent to and from individules. You have to have that direct intent established to consider it harassment.you have to have valid proof of who is involved.

We have two dogs, they are kept outside on 25 foot trolleys with separate dog houses, plenty of shade and straw in their houses. We have someone in our neighborhood that keeps reporting us to animal services for inhumane treatment. The thing is, our dogs are happy, good watchdogs and we exercise them regularly. Even our vet loves our dogs because they are so well behaved and lovable. Since the calls and letters are anonymous, we don't know what to do. Any suggestions would be helpful.

WOW, sounds like the perception of most Kentuckians is right. Some of you need to stay off the internet.

My estranged daughters have filed epo's on me 2 times now. The first epo was dismissed, and now I have to answer to a second one because I waved to one of them while I was driving down the road in my delivery truck. Is it considered harrassment if they continually file epo's whenever they see me thinking that I am stalking or threatening them, and what can I do to protect myself legally?

What would you do if the husband of the coach of your child's 5 &6 grade ball team walked into the locker room after game and started yelling at the girls to tell their parents to sit up in bleachers and keep their mouths shut, or they would jerk their jerseys off and kick them off the team?
