Defending Uttering Threats Charge
The consequences of uttering threats could be imprisonment. You may face additional restrictions after your sentence is completed, such as providing a DNA sample and up to three years of probation. Uttering threats could be in any form: threaten to kill or seriously injure any person, harm or kill a person’s animals, or destroy someone’s property. A person could be charged and found guilty of this offence if the threats are made directly or indirectly to the person targeted. To defend against uttering threat charges, we negotiate with the Crown and build a case to prove that you are not a danger to the alleged victim. In most cases, threats are made orally and the defendant may believe that there is no evidence of the threat. However, in an uttering threat charge, the statement of the complainant is evidence. The outcome of the case largely depends on whether the judge believes you or the complainant.
