Terroristic Threats in Texas
Although the word “terrorist” brings to mind things like bombings, mass shootings, and national casualties, a terrorist threat crime can refer to less sinister actions.
Under Texas Law, a terrorist threat crime is broadly defined and involves threatening to commit any offense involving violence to any person or property. You might be thinking that a terrorist threat sounds a lot like simple assault. What distinguishes a terrorist threat from a simple assault case is the specific intent involved.
A threat that might lead to prosecution for a terrorist threat crime would:
- Cause someone else to fear imminent serious bodily injury
- Cause law enforcement or other emergency personnel to respond
- Impede or interrupt public services, such as transportation, communications, water, gas, or power supply
- Cause the public or a large group of citizens to fear serious bodily injury
- Influence the conduct or activities of a branch or agency of state or federal government
- Prevent or interrupt the occupation or use of any public place, such as a place of employment, place of assembly, aircraft, or automobile
To obtain a conviction, prosecutors are only required to prove that a defendant had one of these types of intent. It is important to have a skilled lawyer on your side who has experience defending against these types of charges.
Common defense tactics used against terrorist threat charges include:
- Absence of threat
- Absence of intent
- Presence of an alibi
- Presence of consent
- Unlawful seizure of evidence
