Minnesota Threats of Violence Attorney

One Felony level crime in Minnesota is Threats of Violence (formerly known as “terroristic threats”). Minnesota Statute 609.712 reads: Whoever threatens, directly or indirectly, to commit any crime of violence with purpose to terrorize another or to cause evacuation of a building, place of assembly, vehicle or facility of public transportation or otherwise to cause serious public inconvenience, or in a reckless disregard of the risk of causing such terror or inconvenience may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than five years or to payment of a fine of not more than $10,000, or both.

There are many circumstances where Threats of Violence could be charged. Threats of violence can consist of either verbal or written words such as sending text messages, social media messages or emails, or through non-verbal actions such as showing a weapon, firearm or replica firearm. Threats of Violence charges can also evolve from calling in a bomb threat or claiming a certain location has explosive or an incendiary device there. When an individual is charged with Threats of Violence, the state needs to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that an individual had the intent to terrorize another person or was acting in reckless disregard of the risk of terrorizing another as a result of such actions.

Given Threats of Violence can be categorized in a myriad of ways, it is critical one has an experienced Minnesota criminal lawyer by their side. When an individual is represented by a Minnesota criminal attorney, he or she will review specifics of any alleged conduct, review potential legal challenges and defenses, and paint a clear picture of what one can be up against. Experienced legal counsel may be able to get such charges dismissed or reduced.

Should you or a family member or friend be facing Threats of Violence charges, the MN criminal defense attorney is nothing short of a necessity prior to talking to law enforcement or appearing in court.
