Hello and thank you for using JA! My goal is to provide you with excellent service and help with your legal problem.
In a situation like this, you can file a criminal complaint
against her for harassment
. Under Hawaii law, it states:
. §711-1106 Harassment.
(1) A person commits the offense of harassment if, with intent to harass, annoy, or alarm any other person, that person:
(a) Strikes, shoves, kicks, or otherwise touches another person in an offensive manner or subjects the other person to offensive physical contact;
(b) Insults, taunts, or challenges another person in a manner likely to provoke an immediate violent response or that would cause the other person to reasonably believe that the actor intends to cause bodily injury to the recipient or another or damage to the property of the recipient or another;
(c) Repeatedly makes telephone calls, facsimile transmissions, or any form of electronic communication as defined in section(NNN) NNN-NNNN2), including electronic mail transmissions, without purpose of legitimate communication;
(d) Repeatedly makes a communication anonymously or at an extremely inconvenient hour;
(e) Repeatedly makes communications, after being advised by the person to whom the communication is directed that further communication is unwelcome; or
(f) Makes a communication using offensively coarse language that would cause the recipient to reasonably believe that the actor intends to cause bodily injury to the recipient or another or damage to the property of the recipient or another.
Once you filed the complaint, she will be served with the complaint, typically by the police. Then she would have to deal with her issues in the criminal justice system.
You can also file for a restratining order against her at the same time that would prevent her from being able to have any contact with you whatsoever. If she violated that order, then she can be arrested and thrown in jail and face further criminal charges.
If you need further help, just reply to me via the “REPLY” button and I will be happy to continue.
