    Default Re: Second Degree Threat to Do Bodily Harm

    That statute is for harassment in the second degree, a violation. The maximum penalty for a violation is a fine and up to fifteen days in jail.

    The defendant should consult a lawyer as, depending on the full facts, it may be possible to get a non-criminal disposition.
