Defending Against Serious Terroristic Threat Allegations

Those who have been accused of making terroristic threats need to understand that the government takes this very seriously. Ramifications can be severe, as terroristic threats are a felony in both North Dakota and Minnesota. This could lead to thousands in fines and years in prison – and that’s only if there are no aggravating factors, such as the use of a weapon. You may even face federal charges.

What Is A Terroristic Threat?

A terroristic threat is a threat made intentionally to terrorize or strike fear into the general public. This may lead to the evacuation of a public building or disrupt government operations. Examples include things like:

  • Threatening violence at a school or making a “kill” list
  • “Swatting,” or falsely reporting a violent act is occurring to engage a police action
  • Hoax threats, such as leaving a suspicious package in a public place and claiming it is a bomb
  • Threatening to blow up a building unless certain demands are met
  • Social media threats directed against individuals or groups
  • Publishing written manifestos that outline plans for mass violence
  • Making telephone threats for the purpose of intimidation
  • Sending letters, emails, text messages that threaten violence
  • Explicit verbal threats of violence and even some gestures

It is important to note that every situation is unique. The aggravating factors can determine the severity or variety of charges a person faces.
