Conduct Leading to a Threat Accusation

There are different types of violent threats. One is making a threat of violence with the intent to cause terror in others. This is a common type of threat that can lead to up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted.

If any of these factors are believed to be present at the time of the offense, a charge can be made:

  • The alleged threat is made in a public place
  • A public mode of transportation is evacuated because of an alleged threat
  • The alleged threat is to commit a violent act with the intent of terrorizing other people
  • The public is inconvenienced because of an alleged threat

All it takes to be charged with making a threat of violence is for a person to tell another person that they are going to terrorize someone or commit a terrorist act. Simply saying the threat is possible can result in a charge and a conviction can lead to a $3,000 fine and up to 3 years in prison.
