California Extortion Laws

California Penal Code Section 518 defines extortion as the act of using threats to obtain money or property from a person. A threat in the case of Extortion does not include immediate or impending physical harm, but rather the possibility of harm in the future. Extortion is a criminal offense that can result in jail or prison, restitution to the alleged victim, court-ordered counseling, and substantial fines, depending upon any prior convictions. If the case has received media attention, then the prosecutor's office typically takes even a tougher stance and may ask for the maximum sentence.

An experienced attorney can help you fight the crime of Extortion in court. It is always in your best interest to retain the services of an aggressive and knowledgeable attorney who can help you to establish a successful defense. Our criminal defense attorneys are former prosecutors who understand firsthand what the state must prove, and work tenaciously to find weaknesses in the government case.
