THREATENING TO BOMB BURN OR DESTROY
Threatening to bomb burn or destroy is a person:
- Firstly, who makes and communicates to another by any means any threat to bomb, burn, destroy or in any manner damage any place of assembly, building or other structure, or any means of transportation.
“In order to sustain a conviction under the statute, the communication must be taken in context. The communication must have been maliciously made, and must reasonably cause the receiver of the threat to believe that the speaker of the threat will act according to his expressed intent. Jones v.Commonwealth, No. 0977-98-3 (Va. Ct. of App., Feb. 23, 1999). Representation by a criminal defense lawyer is always recommended.
