Full Question:

When a person files harassment charges on you (harassment by e-mails), does a policeman call you and tell you? Or should you get papers served to you?

Answer:

Many police agencies are reluctant or ill equipped to deal with the problem because it is still so new and because it is often unclear when online misbehavior crosses the legal line from annoying to criminal.; If your conduct constituted a misdemeanor, the police or sheriff's department may be contacting you.
