This felony charge is more common in domestic violence cases whereby a defendant is accused of threatening a romantic partner or family member for calling the police.

Threatening or intimidating cases are charged as felonies when involving criminal street gangs.

Amazing group of attorneys they are very compassionate and caring for their clients. Ashelee Weeks was always very attentive with sending me all updates and talking to Getting the right legal defense against threatening and intimidation firsts starts with understanding its definition.

According to Arizona Revised Statute 13-1202, threatening or intimidating can include: Most often, the victim of threatening or intimidating conduct has a unique, subjective view of the situation.

The allegation of threat is often made up, exaggerated, or blow out of proportion.

A victim might report the charge out of anger, vindication, or frustration, rather than in response to a genuine concern for safety or property.

I was treated with respect and consideration the entire time with constant communication about my case so I understood exactly what was happening.

With this charge, there doesn’t need to be physical contact to the alleged victim or property. Furthermore, threatening or intimidating doesn’t even require that the victim actually felt any fear. Most threatening or intimidating cases arise out of uncorroborated claims from a biased victim.

In other words they’re typically “he said, she said” cases.

Unlike other crimes, it is not clear when someone is or is not threatened or intimidated, as it is a personal, rather than objective, state. 13-1202 states that the penalty for injuring someone or damaging another’s property out of intimidation can be a class 1 misdemeanor.

Because of this, the legal defense for threatening and intimidation charges must be aggressive and unwavering. If that conduct is done in retaliation for someone reporting criminal conduct, such as assault or domestic violence, this can become a class 6 felony.
