Lawyer Defending You Against Menacing Charges
Have you been accused of menacing or making threats against another person? These are serious charges that could lead to serious criminal consequences, as well as immigration and employment issues.
At the Law Office of Luke Scardigno, I represent people in New York, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, The Bronx and Staten Island, and Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester counties who have been charged with menacing and related criminal charges. Additionally, if an order of protection has been issued has been issued against you, I can help you explore your legal options.
Understanding Menacing Charges
The crime of menacing involves threatening another person, placing him or her in fear of death or serious physical injury. This is considered third-degree menacing, which is a Class B misdemeanor.
There are different classifications of menacing. If an individual is alleged to have displayed a deadly weapon while making threats against another person, he or she may face second-degree menacing charges. Felony menacing charges may come from repeat second-degree menacing charges or threatening a police officer.
No matter what degree of menacing charges you are facing, it is important to take prompt legal action and contact a lawyer. You may be facing large fines, probation, prison time and other penalties, including a lifetime criminal conviction that could affect you for years to come — or a lifetime. Menacing charges often go hand in hand with domestic violence arrests. As an experienced criminal defense attorney, I will aggressively defend you against the charges and work toward a resolution that keeps your best interests in mind.
