If a man texts his ex swearing at her and criticizing her for breaking up with him in an immature way, is this cyberbullying?

Q: If a man texts his ex swearing at her and criticizing her for breaking up with him in an immature way, is this cyberbullying?

A: David's Answer: It may be, but the question under NY law is whether it constitutes a crime or not. The definition of harassment is "He or she engages in a course of conduct or repeatedly commits acts which alarm or seriously annoy such other person and which serve no legitimate purpose." Thus, if it was only 1 text, it's unlikely to fit the definition. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Domestic Violence attorney for a full assessment. - David Bliven, Westchester Domestic Violence Attorney (www.blivenlaw.net)
