Q: Is there any way I can get around a terroristic threat charge in ga?
The person is a bad person to society with no morals and has caused me a great deal of pain and anguish. I want to beat them up and expose them for what they are. I guess I have a vendetta can I threaten them without getting a terroristic threat charge?
A: It is illegal to use any threatening language of any kind towards a person in the state of Georgia. You could face possible charges such as terroristic threats or harassing communication. If you are in physical danger, I advise seeking the help of law enforcement. If you are not in physical danger, I advise consulting with a plaintiff's attorney to see if you have a legal action against this person for what they caused you.
There are many layers to this crime. While we never condone or encourage illegal activity, there is a definitive difference between stating your opinions about someone and crossing the threshold and making terroristic threats. Given your circumstances, it is in your best interest to contact an attorney, as soon as possible, who can assist you with the specifics of your circumstance and counsel you on the appropriate measures to take.
We are glad to assist you. Contact us whenever you are ready.
I wish you well.
