The minimum conduct to commit harassment is not usually considered a crime of violence in most states or a crime involving moral turpitude to USCIS. If the person that complained against you was a current or former spouse or "similarly situated individual" then it could be a COV. If that is the case you would need an attorney to argue that is should not be considered a Crime of Violence still. I would still suggest that you have a local attorney look at the underlying facts of exactly what happened to make a more exact determination. That is beyond our capacity on this website.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
