Uttering Threats of Death or Bodily Harm Is Illegal in Ontario

If you have been charged with threatening death or threatening bodily harm, you are facing conviction for “uttering threats.” This conviction can bring jail time, fines and a lasting criminal record that may affect housing, employment and other areas of your life.

At the Ontario law firm of Neuberger & Partners LLP, our Toronto threatening death lawyers defend clients facing charges of solely uttering threats, as well as those who have been charged with domestic assault or other crimes in addition to uttering threats. We work to evaluate the Crown’s case against you and find any manner in which we can help you avoid a conviction.


What the Crown Needs to Prove

If the Crown wishes to go to trial, it will have to prove that you knowingly made a death threat or threat of bodily harm against an individual. The Crown must also prove that you intended such a threat to be treated seriously. In cases involving domestic violence or other assault, the Crown may look to see if a pattern of violence exists, or if any protection order or restraining order has been placed on you. If so, this may help it prove its case.
