How Much Trouble Do You Get in by the Law From Terroristic Threats?

The penalties for a misdemeanor or felony conviction for making terrorist threats include incarceration, fines, restitution and probation. The period of incarceration can be as little as one year for a misdemeanor conviction. The sentence for a felony conviction can range from one year to 100 years.

Penalties for conviction vary by state. Some states impose a fine as small as $200, while other states impose fines in excess of $250,000. Courts may also impose a sentence of restitution, or repayment of damages to the victim of the crime. The court may also opt to award a period of probation in lieu of or in addition to any of the other punishments.
