As with many other criminal charges, the prosecutor must prove a number of elements to demonstrate that you have committed the crime of communicating threats. The State must show that the threat was communicated. The means by which communicated threats are carried out can vary. The threat may be written, spoken, or communicated by other means that would cause a reasonable person to believe the threat is likely to be carried out.
