Los Angeles LGBT Terrorist Threat Lawyers
What is a Terrorist Threat?
Following the 9/11 attacks, terrorist threats have been taken very seriously. Making a terrorist threat involves threatening to commit a violent crime against another person and instilling fear in that person. In California, the threat must be made with specific intent either verbally, in writing, or electronically. A conviction can be made even if the perpetrator is incapable of carrying out the threat.
Because terrorist threats are considered wobblers, victims may either file the crime as a misdemeanor or a felony. If the perpetrator is convicted of the misdemeanor, he or she can face up until one year in prison, while those being convicted of the felony, can face up until 4 years in prison. If the threat involved a deadly weapon, the sentence will be increased by one year.
