Threats, Harassment, & Reckless Endangerment

Allegheny Attorneys at Law, P.C. Dec. 9, 2019

Recklessly endangering another person is a misdemeanor of the second degree that can be charged if authorities believe an individual’s conduct places or may place someone else in danger of death or serious injury.

“Terroristic threats” is a general charge that encompasses various forms of threats. This includes a threat to commit any crime of violence with the intent to terrorize another person. “Terroristic Threats” can range from a Misdemeanor of the First Degree to a Felony of the Third Degree depending on the type of threat.

Stalking and Harassment are two charges that involve a repeated course of conduct. Harassment charges can arise out of communication, following or harming another person with the intent to harass, annoy or alarm the other person. Harassment can range from a Summary offense to a Misdemeanor of the Third Degree. Stalking is a more serious offense that involves an intent to place another person in reasonable fear of bodily injury or cause substantially. Stalking charges can range from a First Degree Misdemeanor to a Third Degree Felony based on prior criminal history.
