Communicating threats is a common charge between two civilian parties. The charge itself, not only requires the threat of harm to a person, but also to a person's property. Our office routinely challenges this charge because a civilian witness (versus a police officer) is generally viewed by the court with less favorable eyes. The distinction is important, especially in district court where a judge is hearing the case, not a jury. Often the credibility of the complaining party is attacked and is one of the areas we attack when defending these charges. The other key aspect is the belief that the threats were going to be carried out. In order for you to be convicted of this crime, the threat itself is not enough; the person has to believe the threat would be carried out. This is important because if you routinely joke about beating someone up and never do anything, you can use this defense to get found not guilty. If you have been charged with communicating threats, it is of the utmost importance that you contact a Charlotte criminal defense attorney or Concord criminal defense attorney without delay.
