Domestic Violence Lawyer Also Serving San Jose & Walnut Creek
Most people are unaware that threatening and intimidating behavior can lead to a domestic violence charge. California Penal Code Section 422 and 422.6 states that intimidating a person either through words or actions, with the motive to physically harm them or damage their property can result in an intimidating and threatening charge.
If an individual is found guilty, they could face up to a year of jail time and receive a 5,000 dollar fine. On top of that, the defendant could be required to serve up to 400 hours of community service. If you have been involved in a threatening and intimidating felony, you need to get a trusted attorney on your side, who will not back down from defending you.
