Terrorist Threat Charges

The number of terrorist threat charges in the state of New Jersey has seen a significant increase lately. Due to the nature of the allegations, the case is frequently your word against theirs. Finding and employing a defense attorney specifically trained in litigating terrorist threat charges is vital to the outcome of your case. If criminal charges have been brought against you for a domestic situation that is being classed as a terrorist threat, the Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq team of experienced, respected and dedicated defense attorneys is eager to assist you in the process of defending yourself.

Terrorist Threats: The Legal Definition

In order for criminal charges to be filed, New Jersey Terroristic Threats Law explains the criteria for each degree of offense.

According to New Jersey’s Criminal Law (section N.J.S.A. 2C:12-3): A person will be charged with a third-degree offense if he or she has acted with “reckless disregard” to the general public by threatening an act of violence designed specifically to “terrorize or cause evacuation of a building, place of assembly or facility of public transportation.” Additionally, a person will be charged with a third-degree offense if he or she threatens to kill another person. In order for this to qualify, any reasonable human must believe that their life is in real danger as a direct result of the threat.

According to the same section of the law mentioned above, a person will be charged with a second-degree offense if the offense takes place during a national, state or county emergency. In order to be charged with a second-degree offense, the person must have been reasonably expected to be aware of the state of emergency in their state or county.

All that is required to file terrorist threat charges is the threat of violence, either written or verbal. Regardless of the relationship between you and the other party, you can find yourself seeking a defense attorney for terrorist threat charges if the other party reasonably believed they were in danger. The grading of the offense, and the resulting penalties if found guilty, will depend entirely on the severity of the violence threatened.

I was very impressed with the professionalism and quick turn-around time from all the participants from GGL that assisted me. I would like to especially thank my attorney Jonathan Kessous. His credentials are very notable he is one of four attorneys throughout the entire state of NJ certified by the NJ Supreme Court as a Trial Specialist in both Criminal and Municipal Court Law matters. My case was very serious and could have resulted in jail time or suspension of my license. Jonathan was able to resolve my case very favorably. I am extremely thankful for his assistance. I would also like to recognize and thank his Paralegal Jasmin Caba and his Personal Assistant Marianne Crisitello for their assistance in communicating and preparing me for my trial. They are a great team and I would highly recommend them.
