Fighting Terroristic Threat Charges
A terroristic threat charge usually occurs when a person is accused of threatening someone else with violence. To be convicted, the state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant acted with the purpose of terrorizing another person. The state must also prove that that person acted with reckless disregard for others. These threats can be verbal or written, and actions or the displaying of a weapon can constitute a terroristic threat. Furthermore, calling in a bomb threat, or stating that there are explosives on a premises, can result in terroristic threats charges.
There are many different types of conduct that can be categorized as terroristic threats. An experienced criminal defense lawyer can help.
