Proving a Criminal Threat Conviction
If someone has spoken to commit a crime that will result in severe bodily harm or death to another person and the statement is received as a threat, the former could be liable for a criminal threat conviction.
The government must be able to prove the following beyond reasonable doubt:
- Defendant willfully threatened to kill or cause severe bodily harm to the witness and/ or their immediate family members
- Defendant intentionally meant to threaten the individual through written, oral, or electronic correspondence
- The threat has no false pretenses and was communicated to the complaining witness clearly and unconditionally, as if it will be carried out right at that moment
- The complaining witness or his/ her immediate family was in danger causing him/ her to feel scared
