When you are the victim of sexual harassment, you want to protect yourself against the harasser in every way possible. The best defense against continued harassment is to stop the person harassing you from being on your property or at your work location. You can do this by getting a no trespass order, and ensuring that the local police know about the order.
If you submit the proper no trespass order and your harasser enters upon your property, they will be subject to immediate arrest and prosecution. Pursuant to Massachusetts General Law Chapter 266 § 120, the penalty for the crime of trespass is:
- Up to 30 days in jail
- A fine of up to $100.00
- Or both such fine and imprisonment
