Assault & Threat Crimes
NJ Attorney for Assault, Terroristic threats, Reckless Endangerment
It may have been a misunderstanding, an angry comment, a careless statement, or a maliciously fabricated charge. But, if you have been accused of making terroristic threats in New Jersey you may face serious consequences. Simple assault charges escalate quickly to aggravated assault if the dispute involved a New Jersey police officer, the use of a weapon, or serious bodily injury. Depending on the degree of offense you are charged with, you may face prison, jail time, probation, or a restraining order.
