While it is clear that the police exercised poor judgment, you still need a lawyer.

Harassment in the second degree is a 'violation', which means it is punishable by a fine and not imprisonment.

You are welcome to a consultation. Email is best to schedule an appointment.

I need to know more facts before offering a real opinion. Where did this incident take place, were you arrested, fingerprinted and what court or venue is it returnable? These issues are important. I can however based upon your statements assume that you will not serve jail time. There is also a very strong possibility that this can be plea bargained appropriately so as to help you avoid a criminal record. Contact my office ,we are listed in the phone directory or by e-mail at r.evans@lawyer.com., leave your phone # and I will arrange for a free phone consultation.
