Under the Criminal Code of Canada, a threat has a broad definition. It is a serious offense, and one does not need to have a motive for the threat or means of implementing it. Common threat cases are “Uttering Bodily Harm” and “Uttering Threats.”
If one utters, causes or conveys for another to receive a threat knowingly, they can get charged with Uttering Threats. It could be a threat to damage, destroy, burn real or personal property, cause death or physical harm. In that, the risk has to be dangerous.
Before considering a guilty plea, it is advisable to consult with an experienced Criminal Lawyer, in your area. The penalty in each case depends on how the Crown chooses to proceed. It could result in a maximum of 5 years jail time if the Crown continues by indictment.
Consequences of getting convicted can be devastating to your future, family, and livelihood. Consider calling Grewal Law, your reliable Criminal Lawyers in Caledon.
