Common Illegal Threats
A threat is a warning of an individual’s intention to perform a malicious act. Although the threat may not be acted upon, it can still be considered a crime. The intention alone to commit a crime may be just cause for an arrest. It is important to remember, however, that being arrested and charged with the commission of a crime does not have to end in a conviction and a criminal record.
