Providing A Strong Defense Against Threats Of Violence Accusations

Most people are unaware that they can find themselves facing felony charges for making statements in the heat of the moment that they never intended to, or may never even have been capable of completing. Highly charged statements, such as threats to harm someone in the future, are grounds for felony threats of violence charges (formerly known as terroristic threats). Examples of statements that could be the basis for a threats of violence charge include:

  • I am going to kill you
  • I am going to get my gun from the car

Criminal Defense In Hastings

Many of these cases are simple arguments that should be charged as a disorderly conduct. But once the police feel that a certain line has been crossed and there has been a clear threat of future violence, they will charge it as threats of violence, which elevates the level of charge to a felony.
