Written Threats to Kill & Terrorist Threats Charge Dropped in Coral Springs by South Florida Criminal Attorneys

Outcome of Written Threats to Kill & Terroristic Threat Charge:


We got Gary C.’s terrorist threats charge reduced to extortion, which is a sealable crime – meaning, that people won’t see the criminal charge when they pull his record. Getting his charge sealed allowed Gary to continue on with his life without worrying about his career or future.

Client Concerns In of Written Threats to Kill & Terroristic Threat Case:

Gary is a juvenile, and he was worried about having a criminal record or going to jail. Gary is very intelligent and in all honors and AP classes, and was supposed to attend a college program but got kicked out after the incident. Gary was worried that 30 seconds of him making a mistake would screw up the rest of his life and his chance to get a good education and achieve his best future.

Facts of Written Threats to Kill & Terroristic Threat Charge:

Gary was on an open forum app when he posted a comment saying that he was going to attack Patrick Airforce Base in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Gary has always been a big fan of video games, and he posted his comment as a joke talking as if he was playing one of his games.

The comment was flagged and reported to the FBI, who then told the Airforce Base which went into a lockdown. Gary had no idea that his comment had caused any harm until he saw someone else respond that the base was in a lockdown. Gary then deleted his comment and changed his username. Later that day, the FBI showed up to Gary’s door to question him about the comment. Gary admitted to writing the comment, but told them that it was a joke and did not realize it was a crime.

Gary was very cooperative and upset that his comment caused any harm, but was then arrested for the crime of written threats to kill or terrorist threats.

Strategy to Attack Written Threats to Kill & Terroristic Threat Charges:

Gary was filed in juvenile court and had nothing in his background that would show that he is a threat, so we tried to get him into a diversion program but the prosecutors would not agree. Once we looked at the discovery, we realized that they could not prove the case at a trial. The prosecution did not have the right witness listed or the texts, and we would have won on rules of evidence rather than facts.

On the day of the trial, the prosecutor begged for a continuance, which the judge granted. We talked to the supervisor and tried to convince her to put Gary into a diversion program. She went to the head of her unit, who went behind her back and filed Gary as an adult. Now, Gary would have a mugshot and an adult charge of a second-degree felony with a maximum prison sentence of 15 years.

We were able to get Gary out of jail on a $1,000 bond and had him evaluated by an active shooter risk evaluator. The evaluator said that he did not think that Gary could do anything, but could not rule anything out. We thought that going to trial would be a tremendous risk, because we would now be arguing in front of a jury instead of just a judge. We ended up working with the prosecutor to get Gary out with juvenile sanctions (probation) until he is 19.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
