Threatening and Intimidating in Domestic Violence Situations
The Defense You Need. The Advocacy You Can Trust.
In domestic violence situations, when someone is accused of threatening or intimidating another, the offense can be charged as an assault offense and is considered a violent crime. The actions of threatening and intimidating someone can be very subjective, especially in a domestic violence matter. With emotions running high, a family member can easily accuse another of having threatened or intimidated them simply because of the family disputes.
If you find yourself facing these types of charges, consult with our Riverside defense attorneys at Law Offices of Grech & Packer. We can provide skilled and experienced counsel to represent you.
What is Considered Threatening or Intimidating Conduct?
The actions considered to be threatening or intimidating can include such things as:
- Verbally threatening someone with harm or actually physically harming them.
- Threats to the person's personal property would also be considered this type of offense.
Regardless of whether there is actual physical contact, an assault charge can be brought. In domestic violence cases, this can include sexual assault threats, intimidating language, or threats of physical punishment.
