Los Angeles Violent Threats Attorney
Have You Been Arrested For Making Violent Threats in California?
Criminal acts that involve the threat of violence in the commission of the act are labeled as violent crimes. The threat of violence may or may not include the use of a weapon. However, if a weapon is used the offense will most often carry with it enhanced punishment. A person may be charged with a violent threat in connection to any of the following crimes, among others: robbery, armed robbery, assault, battery, murder, manslaughter, gang crimes, kidnapping, domestic violence, hate crimes, sexual assault, and terrorist threats. Under federal law the punishments for a violent threat are varied and may include: imprisonment, large fines, probation, and/or parole. Furthermore, the charges and sentencing may be enhanced if the defendant used a weapon in the commission of the threat or has a prior conviction on his or her record.
