Harassment is a summary only offence, which means it can be tried in the magistrates’ court. As the sentencing powers of the magistrates’ court are limited, the maximum penalty for this offence is 6 months’ imprisonment and/or a fine. However, more serious harassment cases could result in the case being heard at the Crown court and attract a much longer prison sentence.
