Criminal Threats

Section 422 of the California Penal Code makes it illegal to make criminal threats.

Criminal threats are taken very seriously by prosecutors in this state. With the advent of laws against cyber-stalking and zero tolerance policies against “cyber-bullying” in schools and colleges, prosecutors take these cases extremely seriously.

Even if you have not actually inflicted any physical harm or injury on the victim, or did not follow through on your threats, the very fact that you communicated the threat is, in and of itself, against the law. It is not something to handle lightly and it is not recommended that you represent yourself in something as serious. You require the services of an aggressive, experienced and knowledgeable Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer.

You may be charged with a criminal threat if you have issued a verbal, written or electronical communication to a person containing a threat of immediate harm. The threat must carry the intent to cause harm and it must actually create fear in the person threatened.
