"Harassment" is not necessarily illegal. People cannot sue other people for "harassment", except in situations like the workplace.

But it sounds like these people are giving your son grief for no good reason, and "intentional infliction of emotional distress" and "defamation" can be tort counts in a civil case. Without knowing more about the facts of your case, I cannot help you or represent you at this time.
