Threats of Violence
(previously Terroristic Threats)

Being charged with Threats of Violence (formerly known as Terroristic Threats) can have devastating consequences on your life. Depending on what happens with your case you could be prohibited from doing certain jobs, from living certain places, from traveling to another country and even facing a lifetime prohibition on possessing firearms. 

If you or a loved one has been charged with Felony Threats (pursuant to Minn. Stat. § 609.713), it is imperative that you call Minnesota Legal Defense as soon as possible.

Even if you have not been charged yet, it is important to have an attorney from the moment you believe you may be a suspect. 

With your case in the hands of one of the most experienced criminal trial lawyers in Minnesota, Paul D. Sellers, you will immediately gain the protection and piece of mind that comes from having all of your rights completely protected. 


Terroristic Threats


Not Guilty

Client was charged with Terroristic Threats because a nosy neighbor overheard an argument between Client and his step-father and called the police. Client admitted to calling his step-father names, but denied making any threats. Attorney Paul D. Sellers combined the recordings from all five 911 calls and presented the judge with a seamless timeline of the events. After reviewing the evidence, the judge concluded that the 911 caller was frustrated by the slow response time by police and began embellishing details to encourage the dispatcher to assign the call a higher priority.

The judge decided the 911 callers were not credible and found Client NOT GUILTY of Terroristic Threats. Another big win for Minnesota Legal Defense.
