What is the legal definition of telephone harassment in Idaho?

For the purpose of getting a protection order, telephone harassment means that the abuser:

  • used the telephone to communicate a threat to injure or physically harm you or any member of your family; and
  • contacted you with the intent to terrify, threaten, or intimidate you.

Note: This definition is different from the criminal definition of use of telephone to annoy, terrify, threaten, intimidate, harass or offend.2
