Terrorist threats have always been considered serious crimes in the United States, but law enforcement agencies have become especially strict since the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11. A terrorist threat is the threat to commit an act of violence intended to threaten or intimidate another individual(s) with reckless disregard of the risks. In many cases, a terrorist threat results in the evacuation of a place of assembly, a building, stadium, airplane or other area where lives could be endangered.
Because of the reckless disregard for the risks caused by such evacuations and the serious public inconvenience of terrorist threats, those who are accused of these crimes often face severe penalties and punishments. If you are under investigation for a terrorist threat crime, it is important to consult with a qualified criminal law attorney who can protect your rights and interests.
