HB17-1188

HB17-1188 - Harassment Sexual Orientation Or Disability

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning bias-motivated harassment.

Colorado's law concerning bias-motivated crimes prohibits the intimidation or harassment of another person because of that person's actual or perceived race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, physical or mental disability, or sexual orientation. However, Colorado's harassment statute makes harassment a class 1 misdemeanor if the offender commits harassment with the intent to intimidate or harass another person because of that person's actual or perceived race, color, religion, ancestry, or national origin.

The bill adds physical or mental disability and sexual orientation to the categories described in the harassment statute to make the statute consistent with Colorado's law concerning bias-motivated crimes.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
