Definition of Criminal Threats, Violation of Penal Code Section 422

A simple threat against someone or some place is a crime in California. Penal Code Section 422 defines a Criminal Threat as any statement made by a person that inflicts a reasonable fear about a credible threat of violence. A serious felony case may originate from a misunderstanding between a suspect and the person that reported him or her to the police. No matter what your intentions are, you need to take these allegations seriously.

Allegations of making Criminal Threats arise from a variety of situations. Often the alleged statements begin with a simple argument that is then blown out of proportion. Felony threats may include death threats, threats involving a gun or knife, bomb threats, and threats of physical violence.
