can i be charged with harassment if i sent about 5 texts to an ex's new mate? the texts included words like "you will never be able to deal with a man like me" and "we will meet" etc. these were all sent in one evening and when the receiver threatened to file harrassment charges, i may have told him he was gay. then he said he would file. i received a phone call from the police saying that it could be harassment and i needed to stop. i did stop. will i likely receive either a summary offense or criminal charges?
