If you’ve been accused of making terroristic threats, your life could be on the line. Discuss your case with a Philadelphia terroristic threats attorney now.

Terroristic threats are defined by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as:

Threats to commit any crime of violence with the purpose of terrorizing a community or group of individuals or with the purpose of causing evacuation of a building, place of assembly, or facility of public transportation or otherwise to cause serious public inconvenience or in reckless disregard of the risk of causing such evacuation or inconvenience.

Since 9/11, terroristic threats are taken extremely serious in the United States, and especially in the State of Pennsylvania. The penalties for being found guilty of making terroristic threats are severe. You could be sentenced to long term imprisonment, including life in prison, mandatory rehabilitation, loss of your right to bear arms or vote, pay hefty fines or be put on probation.
