A “Criminal Threat” is a verbal threat of immediate harm to a person that is intended to cause fear in that person and causes the person to reasonably feel threatened.
A Criminal Threat is a “wobbler” and can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. If charged as a felony, it is classified as a “serious felony” and a conviction qualifies as a “strike” under California’s Three Strikes Law.
