Domestic Violence Terrorizing is defined as follows:

The victim must be a domestic partner or dating partner of the defendant, as defined by Title 19-A section 4002 of the Maine Statutes.

The defendant must make a threat to commit an act of violence, which is dangerous to human life and does in fact cause the person who this threat was communicated to, to be placed in reasonable fear of the act being carried out.

The prosecution faces serious proof problems when charging Domestic Violence Terrorizing as they normally involve a household family member who is not interested in seeing the defendant prosecuted for the crime committed.

Equally important is that if there is only a threat of violence uttered and no physical assault, these cases are incredibly difficult to prove.

Normally, an act of violence accompanies the threat and in those cases, it becomes much easier to prove the underlying threat.

If you’ve been previously charged with any crime of domestic violence or you’ve previously violated a Protection from Abuse Order, you’re at risk for being charged with a Class “C” Felony Domestic Violence Terrorizing crime.

Section 210-B of Title 17-A, which is the Maine Criminal Code dealing with domestic violence terrorizing charges, provides for specific instances where a person can be charged with a felony.
