Englewood NJ Terroristic Threats Charges Dismissed

“The first step to beating a terroristic threats charge in New Jersey is to speak with an experienced criminal defense lawyer about your case.”

Terroristic Threats ChargesTravis J. Tormey of the Tormey Law Firm, LLC recently represented a client who was charged with terroristic threats in the third degree, an indictable, felony-level offense in New Jersey punishable by three to five years in New Jersey State Prison. The client had no prior criminal record. The basis of the charge was a dispute between our client and a doctor who was the fertility specialist for our client and his wife. Our client paid the doctor in excess of $20,000 in exchange for fertility treatment, which resulted in his wife becoming pregnant with twins. Unfortunately, she had a miscarriage and lost the babies. Our client, who was very distraught, called the doctor’s office and demanded a refund or some additional treatment. When the doctor refused, our client allegedly threatened her.

This case was originally charged as a third degree felony. However, we were able to convince the Bergen County Prosecutor’s office to downgrade the charge back to Englewood Municipal Court as harassment, a disorderly persons offense. Then, when we appeared in municipal court, Mr. Tormey was able to negotiate an agreement between our client and the doctor which allowed the charges to be dismissed. This was a great result for both our client and the law firm.
