Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good evening and welcome. I am sorry that you were threatened. Did you have a question you would like to ask? How can I assist you?
I see what is written above. However, all you said was that you were threatened. There is no question and no explanation of what happened. I apologize if you posted more and it did not show up. Can you please let me know what's going on and what your specific question is?
Thank you for the additional information. So, as I am understanding it, someone threatened to hurt you by phone. What specifically is your legal question for me? Are you asking what you can do about this from a legal standpoint?
Thank you. Please let me know what your question is?
They will take a report, investigate, and may recommend to the district attorney that charges be pressed for making a threat of violence.
There would not typically be any civil lawsuit based on what you have described because there have been no actual damages suffered. What you describe could potentially give rise to criminal charges, but that is likely it.
The law provides for up to 5 years of jail time, but obviously each case is different and there are a lot of unknown variables here.
Yes, if it can be proven that I was violent toward his wife, he could be prosecuted for that as well.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I've been able to answer your questions.
Yes, it's unlikely and probably not possible at all because you have not suffered any actual losses, and the whole objective of civil lawsuits is to compensate for actual losses.
Again if there is anything more I can do for you just let me know.
Was there anything else I can do for you before we wrap up?
Okay, I'm very glad I could help. If I have answered your questions this evening, I would be very grateful for a positive rating of my service (using the stars at the top of the page) so that I may receive credit for assisting you.
Very best wishes.
