Have you Been Arrested for Criminal Threats in Orange County?
For a criminal threats charge in Orange County, the defense lawyer you choose to handle your case is important. At The Law Offices of Spencer Seyb, we have defended numerous criminal cases and have a track record of successfully defending criminal threat cases.
Have you been charged with criminal threats? A criminal threat is the crime of putting someone in fear. In Orange County, a criminal threat charge is considered a wobbler, and it can be charged as a felony, which may result in up to four years in state prison, or a misdemeanor, which means you can face up to a year in county jail.
To be convicted of criminal threats, not only does the State have to prove that you threatened to kill or physically harm someone, but that person must have been in a state of reasonably sustained fear, the threat was specific, and you communicated the threat to that person verbally or by written communication. You can be charged with criminal threats in Orange County even if you don’t have the ability to carry out the threat, or didn’t actually intend to carry out the theat.
However, if you hire an experienced, knowledgeable Orange County defense attorney, there are some defenses your attorney can argue. Some examples of defenses are that the threat was vague and not specific, the person you made the threat against could not have reasonably feared for his life, the person against whom the threat was made was not actually in fear or the fear was momentary, or you did not communicate the threat verbally or by written communication.
