Is getting an unwanted picture of a penis from an unknown number considered harassment? If so could I press charges?
Riverside, CA |
I received a text message from an unfamiliar number asking if I could receive pictures. I asked who I was speaking to and they just kept asking if I could receive pictures. Later I received a picture of the mans penis and left a rude message.
Yes. This is criminal conduct. You may report it to the police. If it was done by someone at your workplace, you should report it to your supervisor as well and ask that they investigate the matter.

This is a general response to a question for basic information and is not legal advice.

By all means make a police report. This was a crime. Once they investigate, you can see if it was someone at your workplace. Report the matter to Human Resources at once, and ask them to investigate. They do not have the powers the police have, but they do have a responsibility IF it was a workplace matter.
We do not have a client/attorney relationship until you make an appointment, we discuss your case face to face, I accept a retainer, and we explictly agree to enter into representation.
