Knowledgeable Domestic Violence Threat Crimes Attorney Serving Boston and Qunicy, MA
Know your rights with the help of Keegan Law
If you or someone you know has been arrested and charged with threatening to commit a crime, it’s important to understand what your legal rights and options are under these circumstances. Although you may not have felt that the threat was serious, if it is determined by the courts that the threat was and that you had the ability and intention to carry out the threat, you could be convicted of the charges. Having the knowledgeable and proven assistance of a domestic violence lawyer from our firm can help you in determining what your best course of action should be.
As in assault charges, threatening to commit a crime does not have to include the carrying out of the crime in order for a person to be arrested and charged. If it is determined that the threat justifiably caused fear on the part of the threatened person, and if it is determined that there was both an intention and an ability to carry out the crime, no physical damage needs to have occurred. If you are convicted of threatening to commit a crime you can be subject to penalties of jail time, monetary fines and a criminal record. Our trusted and skilled legal professional can assist you in making a case to have your charges dismissed and thereby avoiding the penalties and criminal record.
