Trusted Legal Guidance When Facing Terroristic Threats
Many people believe, with good reason, that the criminal charge of terroristic threats involves accusations of international or domestic terrorism. The reality is far different but still very serious. Any alleged verbal or nonverbal threat to commit a crime of violence can be considered a terroristic threat. In addition, anyone charged with terroristic threats will also be charged with harassment, a lesser but still serious charge. If you or a loved one has been accused of making terroristic threats, it is vital that you retain a lawyer who will present the strongest possible defense to these charges.
