Threatening and Intimidation

Threatening and Intimidation Allegations

Fight Your Charges with a Phoenix Criminal Defense Lawyer!

In Arizona, criminal charges pertaining to threatening and intimidating are taken extremely seriously. Law enforcement and prosecutors alike will take a "no nonsense" attitude towards prosecuting those who have been charged. Under the 2010 Arizona Criminal Code, 13-1202, it is considered threatening and intimidating when a person uses either words or their behavior to threaten or intimidate the alleged victim.

In relation to domestic violence, these threats can be to either cause serious physical injury to the victim or cause damage to their property. Typically, this is considered a class 1 misdemeanor; however, there are instances in which the charge can be elevated to a class 5 felony. This includes when threats are committed in retaliation to the victim reporting criminal activity, such as reporting acts of spousal abuse or child abuse.
