I threatened someone online can I go to jail?

Okay well I'm 13 and I threaten to beat someone up online because they cheated on my girl friend and I dont know him and he lives in another state but could I go to jail? I also said he should of died for cheating on a girl.

no you would not go to juvie, but the police could talk to you about it.. just dont say that to the same person more than once....

Yes, online threats are illegal. I doubt you will go to "jail" for it, but you did break the law. Given your age, if any charges were pressed, it would be in juvenile court and therefore would be sealed and would not appear on your adult record. But practically, I doubt the person you threatened will report it, or that the DA will press charges. Good luck!

uh yeah......if they report your threat to the police and file a complaint/charges you can be in alot of trouble. Internet threats and threats of bodily harm are no joke. If you get put in juvenile hall do you think the girl will come visit you?? LOL your stupid!

This is actually an issue going through the courts right now. The internet is a whole new ballgame legally speaking.

OK, you're 13, and what you did is make a terroristic threat. You're too young to have a steady girl friend, too young to go to jail or get the death penalty, but not too young to be charged either locally or federally with making terroristic threats or assault if the other kid reported it to his parents and his local police department.

Yes, this is called cyber bullying. If he does report you to some authority that connects you two and say that your comments make him not want to go somewhere or do something, you can go to jail or have a fine

Yes you can actually, even if you are 13.
Depending on where you live.
It will likely only be a holding cell even for a few hours. Depending on the time that you are taken in, you could spend the weekend in jail waiting for a court hearing.
Then there's all the nice court trips and lawyer fees and all that nice stuff.

But that's *if* someone calls the police.
Which I doubt there are very few people idiotic enough to do so if you are stating an empty threat.

A) You're 13, and would be tried as a minor. So no, you wouldn't.
B) I doubt he's going to resort to reporting you to the police, as you are merely 13. If it was a 25 year old man making the threats, the situation would be a bit different.

This is because a 25 year old has the means and the motives to accomplish such a thing, while a 13 year old probably doesn't have the means, and likely won't have the motives to seriously attempt to kill anyone.

Q Continuum
You're 13. I assume the other guy is of similar age? Chances are very good that you will be fine.

NOT A GOOD IDEA...TRY TO DELETE THAT. I'M SURE YOU WILL BE FINE. YOU MIGHT HEAR IT FROM THE KIDS PARENTS AND THEY MIGHT TRY TO MAKE A BIG DEAL AND THE WORST THEY CAN DO AT YOUR AGE I THINK IS CALL THE COPS AND THE COPS WILL HAVE A TALK WITH YOU AND TRY TO SCARE YOU SILLY SO THAT YOU NEVER DO THAT AGAIN. AT THIS POINT JUST RELAX!

Your not old enough to go to jail, just a jouvinile delinquent center or something, but that IS illegal, it depends if you get reported by that kid.

No. But, you shouldn't make such comments online.

Yes. Especially since you are an official teenager, you are probably looking at 50 + years and maybe even death row.
