You deserve an aggressive defense from an experienced criminal threats defense attorney.
If you have specifically threatened to kill or physically harm someone, and that person reasonably feared for their safety, you could face criminal charges. The penalties for criminal threats can be severe, depending on if the crime is charged as misdemeanor or a felony. You could face up to 4 years in state prison, plus other penalties.
It is extremely important to take the charges against you seriously and hire a serious criminal defense attorney such as Perlmutter & Pourshalimi to defend you.
Possible Criminal Threats Defenses
Criminal threats is a highly specific crime requiring the prosecution to move many distinct elements. If your criminal threats defense attorney can keep them from proving any of those elements, you will not be convicted. For example, we may argue that even if you did threaten someone, you are not guilty of a crime for one of the following reasons:
- The threat was vague or ambiguous, not specific
- It was not reasonable for the person you threatened to fear for their safety
- The person wasn’t actually afraid at all
- The person was only afraid for a moment
- Your threat was a gesture, not a verbal or written threat
Of course, if you have been falsely accused, we will tailor our defense arguments accordingly. As your criminal threats defense lawyer, we will put in all the time and effort necessary to create and implement a personalized strategy that will be as effective as possible given the circumstances of your particular case.
