Terrorist Threats

Terrorism is the criminal act of using violence or threats of violence against a group of people to instigate fear in order to bring about a desired political change. People who commit terrorism generally target a group of people, and they may use violence or threats of violence to intimidate the group of people. Terrorism offenders may also use weapons against people or destroy people’s property. When people are arrested for terrorism their criminal charges will depend upon: their prior criminal history, if they have committed prior violent crime offenses, if they used a weapon, if people sustained bodily injuries during the crime, and the extent of the other people’s injuries.

A violent crime is a criminal act involving the threat or use of force/violence. In most violent crime cases, violence is used as a means to an end, meaning people use violence to obtain a certain outcome. In the state of Florida, violent crimes can be categorized as misdemeanors or felonies. However, all violent crimes involve harsh legal consequences if people are convicted of them.

Like all violent crime cases, terrorism cases are always vigorously prosecuted by Florida law enforcement. District attorneys are eager to obtain convictions for terrorism charge offenses. Once a person is convicted of terrorism, he/she may have to spend time in jail or prison, pay fines, or be placed on probation. The legal penalties are very severe. For this reason, it is always a good idea for people to hire an experienced violent crimes attorney when they have been charged with terrorism.
