A violation of Penal Code 422, or “criminal threats,” is a far more serious charge than most people realize. Although Penal Code section 422 is a “wobbler” (meaning it can be charged or pled as a misdemeanor or a felony) it is also a “strike” for purposes of the Three Strikes Law. This means that if you plead guilty or are convicted of a felony violation of Penal Code section 422, you will have a “strike” on your record.
