Terrorist Threats & Stalking Charges

Making terroristic threats is a third-degree crime that occurs in one of two ways.​​​​​

A person is guilty of terroristic threats if they:

  • Threaten to commit any crime of violence with the intent to cause the evacuation of a building or to terrorize. The most common example is phoning in a bomb threat.

Terrorist threats also include:

  • Threatening to kill another with the purpose to put them in imminent fear where the victim believes the threat will be carried out.

It is often a fine line between having a heated argument and committing the third-degree crime of terroristic threats. Sometimes when we are angry, we say things we don’t mean and have no intention of carrying out. The New Jersey criminal defense lawyers at Roberts & Teeter understand this difference and will work hard to make sure others, like juries and judges, understand it as well.

Stalking is either repeatedly maintaining a physical proximity to a person or repeatedly making written or verbal threats toward a person. Stalking is elevated to a third-degree crime when committed during an active restraining order prohibiting the behavior.

In addition to fines, probation, and incarceration, the law allows the court to enter a permanent restraining order to a person convicted of stalking.


Kidnapping is one of the most serious crimes in New Jersey, chargeable as a first-degree crime with a mandatory minimum sentence imposed. A person is guilty of kidnapping if they unlawfully remove another or unlawfully confine another with the purpose of holding that person for ransom or reward or as a shield or hostage.

Less serious than kidnapping are the charges of criminal restraint, false imprisonment, and interference with custody.

Criminal Restraint

Criminal restraint is the unlawful restraining of another or holding of a person in a condition of involuntary servitude.

False Imprisonment

False Imprisonment is a disorderly persons offense where a person knowingly restrains another so as to interfere substantially with their liberty.

Interference with Custody

Any person, even a parent, commits interference with custody when they take or detain a child with the purpose of depriving the child’s other parent of parenting time.

Luring or Enticing a Child

A second-degree crime occurs when a person attempts to entice or lure a child into a building, motor vehicle, or isolated area with the intent of committing a criminal offense against or with the child. When the same act is done against an adult it is third-degree crime in violation of 2C:13-7.

Even to the casual observer, it should be obvious that there is considerable overlap between the above statutes. The same conduct can trigger one or all of the listed crimes.

Ensuring that you receive the best possible outcome given the facts of your case, it is imperative you hire a skilled defense lawyer in New Jersey. Call (732) 607-5553 to speak with us.
