Terroristic Threats Attorney in Roswell

Roswell Criminal Defense Lawyer

You may be charged with terroristic threats if you threaten to commit an act of violence, release a hazardous material, throw an object at an occupied vehicle, or damage property or use a burning symbol with the intent of terrorizing people.

Terroristic threats are considered a felony punishable by up to $5,000 in fines and a lengthy prison sentence. Punishments can be raised due to injury of the victim(s).

What is a Terroristic Threat?

There must be proof that something was said that can be considered threatening. Since words are often subject to interpretation, the interpretation will usually be evaluated from the victim's point of view. Some threats can be direct and obvious, such as "I'm going to kill you," but other threats can be more subtle, more veiled. It's important to look at the entire context and the intent of the statement.

Defenses for a Terroristic Threat Charge

To defend against a terroristic threat charge, you can try to negate the intent component. The defense may admit that the statement was made, but then challenge the intent of the threat. If, for example, the relationship has been otherwise friendly, cordial or peaceful with the victim, a defendant may want to use the congenial history to develop evidence that the statement was made in fun or frustration, but certainly not as a threat intended to stress or terrorize the victim. You will want to introduce proof of a good relationship with the victim, maybe you were friends, coworkers or in a close, personal relationship.
