What is the legal definition of harassment in Oklahoma?

Harassment is when a family or household member or someone you have had a dating relationship with acts in a way that:

  • seriously annoys or alarms you for no good reason; and
  • reasonably causes you substantial (serious) emotional distress (harm).1

Things like obscene phone calls and fear of death or bodily injury could be considered harassment.2
